‘Creative Visions’ exhibit open at Huntington Beach Art Center

April 6, 2017 by  

The 11 annual ‘Creative Visions’ exhibit, which features the work of students from kindergarten through high school, opened March 24 at the Huntington Beach Art Center, and locals still have a couple of days to catch it.

The students are from the Huntington Beach and Ocean View school districts.

More than 1,000 performing and visual artists were represented at the opening reception of the event. Attendees included the students and their parents and families, who enjoyed acts that ranged from choruses and choirs to those who played ukuleles.

The exhibit itself comprised over 500 pieces, with the artists’ work in all types of media, from crayon to acrylics, and ceramics to sculpture. One of the most striking works was an installation by Fountain Valley High senior Joseph Liu, whose 3-D art was entitled ‘In Flight’ and was hung from the ceiling. The work appears to be a flock of birds made by using the traditional origami technique, but a closer look shows that the flock is shaped like an aircraft. Liu and his friends made approximately 75 birds and attached them to a framework. Liu has always liked art but worked mostly in watercolors and oils before trying his hand at 3-D pieces this year.

Time is short to see the exhibit, with it closing this Saturday, April 8.

Projects like this can benefit if organizers work with a flyer printing company to create a handout listing the works on exhibit.
