The City High commons were transformed into an art gallery this Tuesday. Students meandered around the displays, cups of soda and brownies in hand, commenting on their peers’ work.

“We have the art show three times each year,” Art teacher Jill Harper said. “One at
the end of each trimester. It’s a great way for the students to show off their work.”
Photographer David Sehmsdorf had four pictures entered in the show.
“It’s really fun,” Sehmsdorf noted. “I like photography because it’s faster than
painting. A single picture frames a moment in time that can’t be seen again.”
Sehmsdorf said that his art was inspired in part by his father.
“My dad in Germany leads a photography group. When I came to the United States I
wanted to try it.”
Although the art gallery only lasts one day, Harper says there more events coming
“There’s a National Scholastic Art and Writing competition coming up that students
may enter [their work in]” Harper said. “We’ve never had anyone enter it before, but
I feel confident in this group of artists, they’re really talented.”
