Deming Art Council brings back student art show for February exhibit

3 min read

DEMING – The Deming Art Council welcomes the Deming High School art students back following a two-year absence due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The students are typically featured in February with an art show at the Deming Art Center located at 100 S. Gold Street.

Jesse Kriegel, head of the Art Department at DHS and longtime tenured teacher, said students have been putting together some of their bests work to be featured at the show.

“The students are excited for return to the show,” Kriegel said. “It will be a little different because we are still witnessing the long reaches of COVID. Teachers only see kids two times a week, so the show may be smaller this year.”

Kriegel added, “The students appreciate the chance to show their work in a natural gallery setting. There will be no artists’ reception and the students will begin hanging their work next week.”

The show will be ready on Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022 and will be on display through the month.

Junior Abigail Carreon will feature her art work in the student show in February.

“It is always exciting to see what our high school students have created,” said DAC President Marilyn Goble. “There is so much talent in our schools and the Deming Art Center is pleased to bring it to the public for viewing.”

COVID-19 restrictions kept the student show away for the past two years.  The Center will not host a Sunday reception, but the public is encouraged to view the art exhibit during regular business hours through the month of February.
