About The Show:

The NHCC Fine Arts Department is excited to welcome our annual Northwestern High School Art Exhibition in the Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery. The exhibition celebrates the outstanding artwork produced by local area high school students and includes drawings, paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, and more. 

For spring semester 2022, ten area high schools will participate — Anoka, Elk River, Maple Grove, Osseo, Park Center, Parnassus Prep, Prairie Seeds Academy, Rogers, St Michael Albertville, and Zimmerman. Up to 10 students from each school may submit artwork for the show. 

This year’s show contains approximately 80 pieces of art. We are encouraged by the level of engagement from each participating school. The talent behind these artworks on display offers a beautiful glimpse into the individual creativity of the next generation. We intend to help these young artists reach a larger audience through participation in a college exhibition.

One student from each participating high school is recognized by NHCC faculty with an Artistic Merit Award during the exhibition. Visitors to the gallery may also cast their vote for a People’s Choice Award. The winner of the PCA will be featured on next year’s postcards and website.  

This year’s awards will be announced online: February 28th, at 5 pm @ NHCCFINEARTS.ORG
