An eclectic celebration—including artist demonstrations and an awards presentation—during March’s third Saturday at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville marked the opening of both the High School Student Show 2009 and the Blue Line Artists’ themed show, Faces. “The Student Show is one of my favorite exhibits hosted by the gallery,” said Carol Garcia, who attended as representative for the exhibit sponsor, Granite Community Bank. The annual exhibit, now in its 28th year, showcases student artwork from high schools in Rocklin, Roseville, Granite Bay, Lincoln and Loomis. The best of show award was presented to Jasmine San Juan of Woodcreek High School in Roseville, for her pastel portrait. First place awards went to Clarissa Prewitt from Rocklin High School, Tegan Schmidt of Whitney High School in Rocklin and Sarah Depol of Del Oro High School. Second place awards went to Alicia Alturis, Kim Barker and Hanna Meinzer of Granite Bay High School and third place went to Catherine Bayless of Roseville High School; Victoria Binning, of Lincoln High School and Erin Stevens from Granite Bay High School.
