Sequoia High School Exhibition and Opening Reception at Arts Visalia and Opening of the Young Imaginations Gallery
In November 2018, Arts Visalia is pleased to host the art students of Sequoia High School for its second year, displaying the works of multiple arts classes that consist in totality of approximately 140 students, instructed by Sarah Coker. Sequoia High School offers a fresh start to students in an accepting and non-threatening atmosphere, as well as success in earning a living through vocational and career preparation. This exhibition will offer collaboration with students who feel misrepresented and suppressed in society. Sequoia High School offers both Studio Art and 3D Media. Coker is also in charge of the Art Club which provides an open platform for students to have a voice and choice of theme and media. Many of the students express the desire to become better artists and to learn new techniques by exploring their creativity and passion and have talked about how therapeutic art is to find calmness and overcome anger. The exhibition runs from October 31st through November 16th. The opening reception will be held on First Friday, November 2nd, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and is sponsored in part by Bueno Beverage Company, Tulare County Board of Supervisors, Step Up!, Valley PBS, and State Farm. Grand Opening of Arts Visalia’s children’s gallery entitled Young Imaginations Gallery will have a dedication ceremony at 5:15 p.m. on Friday, November 2nd preluding the opening reception for Sequoia High School. After having a successful Young at Art children’s summer program and exhibition, Arts Visalia wanted to provide an opportunity to its students year-round. The new Young Imaginations Gallery will display numerous works created from our 5-17 year old participants of our children’s classes. This is an exciting venture of continuing to stimulate creativity from our young generation.
