Central VPA students to display work at Gallery 210

“Portfolio,” an annual exhibit of selected artwork by students from Central Visual and Performing Arts High School in St. Louis, will be on display from May 7 through 28 in Gallery 210 at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. A reception will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 7 in the gallery. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

“Portfolio” serves two purposes, both allowing students to gain experience. The high school students are given the opportunity to show their work in a professional gallery, while UMSL student intern curators oversee the exhibit. Tessa Engelman, a senior majoring in art history at UMSL, served as curator for the exhibit.

Central VPA High School is a magnet school located in the Southwest Garden neighborhood in St. Louis. The school emphasizes small classes, guest instructors and several performance and exhibit opportunities.

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History at UMSL, Center for the Humanities at UMSL, Missouri Arts Council and the Regional Arts Commission.

Gallery 210 is in the Telecommunity Center on UMSL’s North Campus, One University Blvd. in St. Louis County (63121). Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
