GHS Students Selected for SIUE Art Exhibit

Two GHS students, Brooke Nicholas and Kristyn Durbin have had their art pieces selected for inclusion in SIUE's 2022 Annual High School Art Exhibition. Congratulations!

The 2022 Annual High School Art Exhibition was juried by Carrie Gillen, a St. Louis based artist and educator who received her MFA from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. There were almost 200 entries from 28 regional high schools.

The art that has been accepted is eligible for monetary awards generously funded through Friends of Art and the Art & Design Department. It was a highly competitive body of work with only 50% of the submissions being accepted.
