Those of us who love art, who follow artists, who enjoy the nuances of different styles of art were very impressed with the works of art produced by Everett High School students and displayed at the recent Senior Art Show held at the High School.
Art is about the ineffable, and the ineffable is about art.
What is inside us inevitably comes outside – and this is especially so with artists.
What was so gratifying about the Senior Art Show is that so many young Everett people are so advanced at what they are doing in their own discipline.
Displayed at the Senior Art Show were paper mache creations, ceramics, sculpture, modern, abstract and interpretive paintings, self-portraits and an abundance of unique creations.
Everett High School headmaster Louis Baldi, sub-master Thomas Tower and EHS Art Teachers Katherine Rinaldi and Dominic Rinaldi deserve a great deal of praise.
Nurturing young artists – young urban artists – coming out of Everett is a big job.
Exploding talent is always hard to control or to put into proper context.
This is why the EHS Senior Art Show was so effective.
All the entries showed real talent which reveals that the future shines brightly for these Everett young people who are proud to call themselves artists.
In the immortal words of Henry James: “We work in the dark. We do what we can. We give what we have. Our doubt is our passion, and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.”
