Student art show wraps up successfully

The annual Ballard student art show wrapped up at the Ballard location of the Seattle Public Library on Saturday, May 19th.

Thirty-two student artists and 13 film makers showed around 200 art pieces and sold 27 of them for a total of $663 in sales.

"All money generated goes directly to each individual artist, which they love," said Kim Owens, Chair of ArtWalk 2012 and BHS Art Booster. "I spoke with a student the other day who was shocked and thrilled that people actually wanted to pay for his art."

The art show included student-made jewelry, ceramics, photography and six film shorts.
