Baldwin high School students had many pieces of their artwork on their own display, including senior Avery Reid, during the school’s ninth annual Evening Art Exhibition on April 29.

Baldwin High School students showed off their artwork of all shapes and sizes on April 29 during the school’s ninth annual Evening Art Exhibition. About 175 community members came out to see what the students in grades nine through 12 have been working on.

More than 200 students participated in the exhibition, which serves as a culmination of art students’ efforts in the classrooms during the year. Prior to the show, 42 juniors and seniors were inducted into National Art Honor Society. In order to qualify, students must have an 85 or above average in all their art classes. Meredith Healy-Kurz, who has been an art teacher at BHS for 16 years, said she was proud of all the students who participated.

Michelle Liemer-Kelly, AP art teacher and advisor for the National Art Honor Society, said art classes are important but are being compromised due to increased academic testing.

“I say this to the students as well as to their parents: your voices are strong,” Liemer-Kelly said. “Don’t remain silent as our programs are cut for more academic testing. Keep in mind this saying: “The Earth without Art is just “EH.”
