High School Juried Art Show
The annual High School Juried Art Show (HSJAS) is an important highlight of spring activities for Cumberland County School’s high school visual arts students. This school year, our Juried Art Show ran from March 10-20 at the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County, located at 301 Hay Street.
Mrs. Tori Hord, Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Methodist University, served as our Guest Juror.
Student awards were presented at an Awards Ceremony on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. at the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County.
The Juried Art Show is a professional level exhibit that is open to any Cumberland County Schools high school student (grades 9-12) enrolled in a visual arts class during the 2021-22 school year. The artworks entered must be an original work in any two-dimensional or three-dimensional medium. The artworks entered must also be submitted as completed works of art.
The JAS process begins as students submit their art work through their art teacher for consideration for submission to the show. Each high school has only 10 slots available across the five categories. Pieces are judged based on creativity, originality, the quality of the artistic composition, and the overall impression of the piece. Scores are tallied and the winners are selected based on their scores. Pieces are only judged within their category.
The five categories include:
Drawing: Original art drawn on a two-dimensional surface using pencil, ink, marker, etc.
Painting: Pigment applied to a two-dimensional surface using oil, acrylic, or other applied on canvas, paper or any flat surface.
3D/Sculpture: Three-dimensional objects created by building, carving, casting, or other shaping techniques.
Other/2D: Printmaking, Collage, and Mixed Media.
Digital Media/Photography: Digital drawing, painting, or collage, photo manipulation, computer generated art, or other experimental photography.
The Arts Education Department is proud to announce the 2021-2022 High School Juried Art Show Winners. Photos of the winning pieces are shown below.
