‘Mind of Mine’ student art show

By Kathy Oswalt-Forsythe

The community is invited to attend Vicksburg High School Advanced Placement Art and Design’s annual “Mind of Mine” art show at Prairie Ronde Gallery, 101 East Prairie Street, May 12 from 4 p.m 7 p.m. and May 13 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Advanced Placement Art and Design is a college level course offered at Vicksburg High School, taught by teacher Anna Lacey. The course is a year-long class in which students design an investigation to explore their art-making. They complete various experimental pieces along with many sketches and at least five fully completed works of art.

At the end of the course, students also can photograph and submit their work to the College Board to be evaluated for college credit.

This year, 12 students in grades 10-12 will showcase their work at the May event, featuring a variety of painting, digital, graphite, charcoal and colored pencil pieces.

The name “Mind of Mine” was chosen by the class of 2021 to represent the array of art, styles, and personalities exhibited during the year-long course.

Light refreshments will be offered, and student artists will be present to answer questions and discuss their work.

The event is supported by the Prairie Ronde Residency Program and the Vicksburg Cultural Arts Center.
