LANESBORO, Minn. (FOX 47) -

Beautiful paintings, etchings and ceramic pieces all now dwell within the walls of the Lanesboro Arts Gallery. It's an idea that was thought of several years ago by the gallery staff.

Now, five high schools in the Lanesboro area have student works represented for the public to view as well as for the art staff to judge and critique.
Gallery director, Robbie Brokken as well as Lanesboro High School student Andrew Darling, spoke with Nicholas Quallich about all that has gone into the exhibit.

"It was a staff brain-storm," explained Brokken. "We think it's a perfect way to show the area students the experience of having art in a gallery and putting themselves out there and including the local community in the arts."

The high schools represented in this year's juried art show are Chatfield, Fillmore Central, Lanesboro, Mabel-Canton, as well as Rushford-Peterson.  Although the pieces are adjudicated, according to Brokken, there is no "prize" per se. "The prize is the edification of putting yourself out there, showing people what you made and having your family and friends come and cheer you on and tell you how great you are."

Andrew Darling, a student at Lanesboro High School, says despite the simple set of instructions from his teacher, he says he enjoyed himself and is proud of his work. "Ms. Potter was teaching us about vanishing points and having them on three-dimensional buildings. Our job was to draw a building and have those points with lots of color."

When asked where he got his inspiration from, Darling replied with an unusual, yet, not uncommon answer. "Ms. Potter told us we can just get out our phones and computers and just look up a building and find inspiration," Darling said. " I found 'Big Ben' (the famous London clock tower) and thought: 'Why not?'"

The exhibit runs during normal business hours for the Lanesboro Arts Gallery.
