Malena Earns Purple at Conference Art Show

The East Husker Conference Art Show was held in Clarkson Public Schools on April 10th through 12th. Many Leigh High School students submitted pieces to the art show, and Leigh students received multiple ribbons. 

The Leigh High School students have been working on their pieces all year long. Freshman Carmen Malena was very successful and received a purple ribbon in textile with her piece called “Showing Shirt.” 

Malena said, “I was happy to see that my project I worked on for a long time placed well in our art show! There was lots of good art so it was fun seeing who I was going against.”

Madi Freudenburg submitted a piece in collage, and her piece, “In Full Bloom,” earned a red. Ella Urban submitted a bowl that she created using the pottery wheel, and she obtained a red. Aubrie Hanna’s charcoal picture received a white. Reese Bruhn’s artwork, “Part of the Heard,” obtained a white. Ella Higby’s “Grandma’s Bouquet” received a white in mixed media.

Art teacher Ms. Cully Cerv said, “It's truly empowering to see the amazing artists based in our conference and school. Across the board, the EHC conference is stacked with talent, and art does not fall short. Incredible artwork from each school filled the Clarkson gym. It's really cool to see what the other schools are up to in their classes leading up to the art show. To receive any ribbon at our conference art show is an honor.”

Congratulations to all the competitors!
