Art students from around Baker County will showcase their work during the annual Student Art Show at Crossroads Carnegie Art Center. The show opens at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 5.

Featured artists include Baker High School students and students of Crossroads art classes.

According to a press release, “This exhibition showcases the talent of local students and
illustrates the many ways students can interpret an assignment through their artwork, expressing their individual creativity.”

Screen Shot 2018-01-03 at 12.18.49 PMBHS art instructors Kristen Anderson and Jill Nelson will be showing the work their students created this fall — about 30 to 40 2-D pieces including linoleum prints and drawings, and about 20 3-D pieces including ceramic, sculpture, jewelry and much more.

The art from Crossroads students was created by all ages who have taken classes and workshops. Pieces include paintings, drawings, ceramics, watercolor, and clock sculptures from the students who have taken classes taught by Mo Quinn, Steve Wadner, Becky Litke, Paul Hoelscher, Terri Axness, Amy VanGaasbeck, among others.

The opening reception will go until 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of Crossroads. The show will be on display through Jan. 27, and is sponsored by Garchar & Colton CPAs and Chaves Consulting.
