About 50 two- and three-dimensional artworks produced by Menlo-Atherton High School students are currently on display at the The Great Frame Up on El Camino in Menlo Park. An opening reception for the artists will be held on Thursday, April 28 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.
“This is the 17th year we’ve hosted the student art show,” said senior framer Rose Armstrong. “For the two-dimensional works, the kids come in and select frames and mats, and then we show them how to frame their work.”
The artwork is being judged by community art liaisons and cash prizes will be awarded to the strongest in six different categories – beginner, intermediate and advanced in 2-D and 3-D. All featured students will receive Certificates of Participation. Marcy Magatelli, the owner of The Great Frame Up says the show is her way to “support the arts and the next generation of artists.”
The artworks will remain on display through May 14.
