BELEN—Kathleen Pickering, Belen Public library director, and artist and arts educator Paula Castillo are excited to announce “Where Home Is,” a Belen Consolidated Schools district-wide student art exhibit.
The exhibit is hosted by the Belen Public Library and curated by the Young Curators Club from Infinity High School.
This exhibit features student artwork from Belen High School art students, instructed by Egan Ulbricht, Belen Middle School art students, instructed by Camellia Termini, Central Elementary art students, instructed by Andrea Torrez, Dennis Chavez Elementary art students, instructed by Travis Simpson, La Merced Elementary art students, instructed by Alecia Cargile, La Promesa Elementary art students, instructed by Laura Wacha, and Rio Grande Elementary art students, instructed by Paula Castillo.
“Where Home Is” focuses on work related to themes of belonging, familiarity and displacement. Student artists produced a range of work considering home as an archive of matters and feelings, and everything in between.
A special thank you to Jo’l Moore and Jane Hocking and the Belen Art League for their generous judging of student work.
