The Turlock Regional High School Art Show will be on display Monday through April 20 at the University Art Gallery at California State University, Stanislaus.
The show, featuring work from high schools in the Stanislaus County region, was started in 1985 by Turlock High School art instructor Bob Dennison and Roselawn High Schools Ann Williams-Bailey. Since its inception, the show has grown to exhibit more than 250 pieces of student art every year, representing 10 to 12 high schools.
This show represents so much more than the raw talents of the youth in our community, Pitman High School art teacher Larry DeTomasi said in a news release. It provides an avenue for students to express themselves and connect with their peers through personal growth and cooperative learning experiences. The show also gives us local art teachers an opportunity to connect with our peers and share new ideas in art education.
