Student Art Show Hosted at Escondido Municipal Arts Gallery

November 22, 2021

On November 13th, JPCatholic’s Art Club “Created to Create” hosted its first art show at the Escondido Municipal Arts Gallery. A total of 22 students showcased 32 pieces from 11:00am-6:00pm, including an artist meet and greet from 4:00-6:00pm.

The event was organized by sophomore Illustration student Josh Martin, who wanted to give student artists and illustrators a platform to showcase their work professionally.

“Having an art show was actually a big reason why I founded Art Club,” said Martin. Along with the two other members of the club’s core team, Mia Schaller and Keyana Harrod, he approached the Escondido Municipal Arts Gallery in the beginning of Summer Quarter. “It was a very ideal location for the show, being right here on Grand Ave.”

The club holds weekly meetings, where illustrators of all majors can get together and create in community. Leading up to the art show, Schaller provided the club with a framing workshop, incorporating her father who is a full-time professional artist and painter.

Prof. Max Hulburt and Prof. Jacqueline Nicolini judged the pieces and awarded “Best in Show” to Mia Schaller (junior) for her piece “Tending to the Plants”. Honorable Mention was given to Jocely Lopez (junior) for her piece “Vulnerability”.

The artwork will be on display until the beginning of December, and some pieces are available for purchase. Martin plans to have the Art Club host at least one art show every year.
