The Future is Now
The Future is Now is a mentorship program that has matched six area high school students displaying an array of talent and artistic desire with six professional local artists. For the past several months the couples have worked together creating new works in a variety of materials while exploring some of the different practices and choices that follow the path to becoming a practicing artists in adulthood.
The group has also investigated the professional practices fine artists perform to prepare and create work for exhibitions. Mentors have taught the students about portfolio cohesiveness and helped them create work that highlights their personal talents as well as strengthen areas of weaknesses. This journey has now culminated in the gallery where the students have experienced the curatorial practices of exhibition design, installation and marketing.
Students featured in the exhibit are Isabella Ray from Pleasure Ridge Park High School, Ariana Sheldahl from Jeffersontown High School, Madeleine Herbert from Fern Creek High School, Hannah Thompson from Eastern High School, Molly Conard from Brown School, and Malika Johnson from Male High School.
Mentor-Artists include: David Bibelhauser, Ashley Brossart, Andrew Cozzins, Douglas Miller, Lisa Simon, and Ashley Stinson.
