Last Friday, April 1, or rather "First Friday" in April, the Vail Valley Art Guild's Eagle Gallery was taken over by some very talented artists from Battle Mountain High School along with their instructor Max Devito. Rosemary Martinez's paintings were a backdrop for artists Crow Kirchner and Gracie Roberts with visitor MasonTomasic on the left.
Several artists were in residence to talk with visitors who came to view the works which included paintings, drawings, ceramics, prints, cards, mixed media and a lighted Fairy House by Piper Scheer who is creating other houses using all natural materials.
Gracie Roberts is a senior AP Art student and creator of several provocative paintings including Hyper-Feminine below. She will be attending CU Boulder next year to study art practices and gender studies.
Lizeth Martinez' drawings drew lots of attention including "Hopeless" below.
The students, along with art students from Battle Mountain High School, will return for the closed street Art Walk on May 13 with their work in a tent in front of our gallery. Please be sure to join us!
