The Art Department at Amherst Regional High School is proud to present AR[T]HS 2020, an exhibit of outstanding student artwork from the 2019-2020 school year. This juried exhibit – now in its 12th year – includes work from all of the Art Department’s areas of study: Foundations of Art, Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking, Digital Photography, and Advanced Studio Art. AR[T]HS 2020 includes both work done at school as well as work completed via distance learning. The show can be seen using this link: AR[T]HS 2020
Traditionally held at the Eli Marsh Gallery at Amherst College, the coronavirus crisis made an onsite exhibit impossible this year, necessitating the move to a virtual show. We know how difficult this spring has been for all of our students, especially the senior class. The impact on the Art Department has been no exception. We are so very sorry that our student artists did not get to experience seeing their work exhibited in a beautiful gallery space with a festive opening reception this year.
Please enjoy this year’s fabulous exhibit and appreciate all the love, labor, and creativity that went into each of these works, and to so many others not in the show – including works abandoned in progress with our sudden departure from school and final assignments never begun that students were looking forward to doing.
We sincerely hope to see you all in person at next year’s opening!
The ARHS Art Department: Jeff Stauder, Hannah Hartl, Ben Sears, & Lee Larcheveque
