Art by Western Sierra’s Suarez featured at Crocker Art Museum
Christina Suarez, a sophomore at Western Sierra Collegiate Academy, has been accepted into the exhibition “Inspirations: Kingsley Art Club High School Regional Art Show” at the Crocker Art Museum, on view April 11 to May 19.
There will be a reception for the exhibition from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, May 19. Suarez submitted an original drawing that was inspired by a work from the permanent collection from the Crocker Art Museum.
“It makes me feel very proud and happy to know that my art will be displayed in a museum for all to see,” Suarez said. “Although I don’t plan on following a career in art, I love being able to create something that expresses who I am and to explore new boundaries. I am also very thankful to my awesome art teacher, Ms. Monaco, and my marvelous parents who were always there to support me. It took a lot of work, but it was all worth it!”
Suarez submitted her entry through a program called “Call to Artists.” The program is also a competition in which a first, second, third and honors prizes will be awarded from the exhibit. Founded in 1892, the Kingsley Art Club's mission is to promote the knowledge and appreciation of art, and to promote and encourage the teaching of the arts.
