ATLANTA HIGH SCHOOL ART EXHIBITION

 As part of its mission to celebrate visual artists of all ages, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival welcomes and supports the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition (AHSAE) each year. A juried show that allows young artists to gain real-world experience and compete for prizes like scholarships and art supplies, it has also become a favorite festival feature.

Established in early 1970, the AHSAE has a long history with the Atlanta Dogwood Festival and recognizes and encourages the fine quality of art created by the area’s high school students.

In 2022, AHSAE received 690 entries from 83 schools from which a panel of professional artist judges selected the top 194 works to be on display at this year’s exhibition.

Be sure to visit the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition in the Community Center near the 12th Street Entrance to get a look at the variety and breadth of Atlanta’s young artistic talent. You can even purchase printed copies of your favorite pieces!

⭐ Amy Lansburg creates beautiful mixed media pieces, including sculpture and furniture. Lansburg's family immigrated to Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the 1800s and her work reflects this history. Her original works are created from driftwood and found objects that have washed up on the shores of Lake Superior. Splitting her time between Michigan and Georgia, she creates artwork that amalgamates cultures through the incorporation of deeply personal materials and narratives.

🌳 Check out more of Lansburg's work at the Dogwood Festival juried Artist Market this spring and find more info about the festival at dogwood.org/!

⭐ Kimmy Cantrell, based in Atlanta, GA, enjoys developing fresh variations on several recurring themes: faces, still lifes, nudes, and fish. Kimmy uses many forms to tell his stories, from free standing sculptures to still life collages. He uses asymmetry to challenge traditional definitions of beauty. Through his fragmented flowers and fish for instance, he recounts fond childhood memories of his grandmother Bama who was a very important figure in his upbringing. She taught Kimmy lessons of perseverance, living within your means, and how to be responsible for your own success. He has also uses his nudes and faces as a platform for political and social commentary. His titles are notable as they are often powerful and poignant reflecting turbulent times.
