Let there be light

We are excitedly gearing up for the 6th annual Willamette Valley High School Art Competition, which will be open to the public from April 11 through April 25! This year fourteen schools submitted 214 entries in thirteen art categories. The award ceremony will be Saturday April 11 from 2-4pm.

As the winning art was selected I began laying out the room in preparation for hanging the show. Tuesday evening I turned out the lights in the gallery and had a beautiful surprise. The setting sun cast a triangle of light on a corner of one window pane in the gallery. By some cosmic coincidence, the triangle of light landed perfectly on a painting by Vicky Aceves of South Albany High School. Most of the painting is dark tones, with a bright, fiery, triangle at the bottom, and that is precisely where the sunlight fell!
