Best of 2016 Students Exhibit

October 1, 2016 – January 2, 2017

The Best of 2016 Show features reproductions of the award-winning submissions from this year’s Student Surrealist Art Exhibitions. In these exhibits, students explore a variety of media such as drawing, collage, watercolor, acrylic, digital photography and mixed media. The “Best of” 2016 Show includes artwork from the following shows: Hillsborough Students Exhibit (January 20 – March 6), Pinellas Students Exhibit (March 14 – May 8), and Florida Statewide Students Exhibit (May 16 – September 4).

This year’s theme: “Between Dream and Reality”
The Surrealists lived within two worlds: the real and the dream, the conscious and the subconscious, the rational and the fantastical. With this year’s exhibit, we invited students to create their own “surreality” by employing one or more of the following techniques:

Dislocation: Familiar objects are placed in an odd, bizarre, humorous, or unusual setting.

Juxtaposition: Two or more unrelated images are placed side by side; creating unexpected object combinations.

Transformation/Metamorphosis: Familiar images are changed in form, appearance, nature, condition, character or function to become unusual or strange.
