ABOUT:         Now in its 17th year, the MCHS Art Show at the Manhattan Beach Art Center continues a strong tradition of civic partnership and support to the emerging artists of the local community.

 

“For many students, the annual show at the Art Center is their first time showing their work in a public space,” said Kate Martin, Art teacher at Mira Costa. “It is a great introduction to the art world and hopefully inspires them to participate in more shows and exhibits.”

 

High school student Oia Walker-van Aalst, whose art piece Ghost won 3rd place during the 2016 Art Show, said she feels honored to have had the Art Center display her work, and thankful that the center supports the young artists of Manhattan Beach and the South Bay.

 

“One of the most important aspects of art is the final stage, when the art is presented to other people,” said Walker-van Aalst. “The exposure an artist gets in a show is important for critique and publicity, but a show is also beneficial to its host community.” She added that having her work in the Art Center brought it to life, allowing it to live on through conversations around art.

March 24th, 2017—April 2nd, 2017
