Annual 12th Grade Art Exhibit: Art majors of Ma’ale Habor and Habsor High Schools.
Every year, the Ma’ale Habsor art department exhibits final projects in two beloved studios – one for paintings and the other for sculptures & other installations. This year with the building of the new combined school, our art studios have shifted to the campus of Habsor High School.
I attended the opening of the exhibit, this past Saturday, the 21st of March. We expected signs and arrows but had to search for the Show. Finally, we found one well-lit path leading to a dramatic entrance. We crossed over a floor of upturned plastic water bottles, framed by a flowing effect of streaming water.
Here is a partial shot of Shira Florentine’s work:
Leaving this building, we went on a search for more student’ work. The path was not so well-lit this time. I hit a few dead-ends until I found someone to ask and others to follow. We were a collection of slow pilgrims, clutching to one another as we made our way through the school’s main plaza over to the darkened side of the school. Clutching to wisps of light and hoping to hear sounds of ‘art’, we kept on.
Then, we arrived at a table laden with drink, cake and cookies! Tell-tale signs of Art Exhibit, we knew we were on the right trail. Sure enough, we found a few more buildings housing treasures.
