RHS hosts annual Fine
Arts Show on May 2

Observer Staff Writer

      Much like a playoff game or a band concert, the art students of Romeo are inviting the public to see the culmination of their hard work.
       The annual Romeo High School (RHS) Fine Art Show will showcase artwork from students in grades ninth-12th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, May 2 at the RHS.
       Lewis Page, art instructor at the Romeo Engineering and Technology Center, said the show has been held for many years in the past, but became its own event. He said in prior years the show would combine with groups like theater or jazz band, but having a "solo" show allows the art students to be appreciated on their own.
       "I definitely think art isn't as recognized as more visible things, like the football team where the whole community comes out," he said. "For the art program, it's difficult to put it on display because we have limited areas to do that."
       Space for the show isn't a problem, though, as the hallways of RHS will serve as the venue. Classes represented include drawing, painting, ceramics, jewelry, computer graphic design and commercial art.
       Page said participation has dwindled due in part to the Michigan Merit Curriculum requiring more core classes, leaving little room for students to pursue artistic endeavors. However, he expects 150 to 200 works of art to be submitted by students.
       "Almost all of it is stuff they've done in the classroom," he said. "A lot of the kids have spent a long time working and building a single project."
       He said the show will not only display the talents of the students, but demonstrate how the arts and the careers within the field are growing in today's society.
       "Many students graduate from Romeo and pursue post-secondary opportunities within the realm of visual arts, and the wide range of applications that this field engenders," he said.
       The show is free and open to the public.
