McPherson College Hosts Juried High School Art Exhibition


A paper and mixed media sculpture is one of several artworks on exhibit in the McPherson College Art Pop 2021 juried art show.

McPherson College is exhibiting the artwork of students from 9 area high schools who have entered the college’s annual high school art competition. The exhibition, Art Pop 2021, is on display now in Friendship Hall until November 12.

The entries are selected by high school art teachers who submitted four to six pieces that represent the best artwork of their students from the current and past semesters. Awards and scholarships will be presented during a closing reception on November 12 from 5-7 p.m.

“I think many people will be surprised by the variety of media and the high quality of craftsmanship displayed by these students,” Michaela Groeblacher, associate professor of art and gallery director at McPherson College, said. “We invite everybody to see the exhibit and celebrate these young, promising artists.”

Student artwork from the following high schools is on display: Goessel, Hesston, Hutchinson, Inman, Little River, McPherson, Moundridge, Smoky Valley, and Uniontown.

The gallery exhibition is on display during regular business hours, Monday through Friday in Friendship Hall at McPherson College.
