ARTifacts opens up creativity to community

The 25th annual ARTifacts Art Experience will be held in the Sisters High School commons Friday, April 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is designed for all ages, with much to see, hear, and do — all centered around student art.

The event is a showcase of students’ efforts in various art disciplines. Students will host observational art booths and hands-on art stations for community members to try. Potter’s wheels, face painting, and sculpting stations are a few fun activities available for participants.

Sisters High School Visual Arts Teacher Bethany Gunnarson has made it a goal to honor senior art students, with each having their own display to share with family, friends, and the community.

Performing arts students will provide music during the evening including sets by the jazz band, jazz choir, and Americana Project students.

In addition to giving art students an opportunity to showcase the fruits of their artistic endeavors with the community, ARTifacts seeks to raise money for the visual arts programs and the Sisters High School Art Scholarship. In addition to the entry fee, there will be a silent auction, and visitors can peruse a variety of student-created pottery pieces, stickers, and T-shirts that will be for sale — cash or check are the preferred form of payment.

Entry fee for ARTifacts 2024 an Interactive Art Experience is $7 per person or $25 for a family.

If you would like to donate items to the silent auction, provide funds for the SHS visual arts fund, or volunteer, email Gunnarson at [email protected].
