Visitors to the Brush High School library will discover that the room has been transformed into an exhibit showcasing an array of impressive artwork created by members of the Class of 2018. The gallery is part of the Brush Senior Art Show, which provides an opportunity to showcase artwork, including photography, paintings, drawings and ceramic art, created by seniors during their four years at Brush. Celebrated for over forty-years, the annual exhibit opened on Thursday, April 19th and will be open for public viewing from 8 AM to 3 PM through Friday, May 4th in the Brush school library. Select student artwork is available for purchase.
From April 16th – 17th, a panel of judges composed of teachers, local business owners and artists, art educators, as well as former students, evaluated and awarded artwork in the show. On Thursday, April 19th, an Opening Night and Awards Ceremony was held at Brush High School. Monetary and gift awards were provided through generous donations by contributing members and organizations in the South Euclid/Lyndhurst community, including Legacy Village, One South Euclid, the PTA, SEL Board of Education, Blick Art Supplies, the Welo Family, the Martin Family, Vicinato Pizza, South Euclid Hardware and Suburban Health.
