ART33 is the name of the vibrant high school student art show on display now at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The artwork in a variety of media was created by student artists in grades 10, 11 and 12 from all three secondary schools.

“This show has been an annual event for years, originating first from CSS and then growing to include SSS and most recently GWG,” said SSS teacher Sandra Weins.

“This year is an exciting year for us as we graduate from the old Arts Centre’s downstairs gallery to the new facility.”

In conjunction with the move to the spanking new gallery off the Cultural Centre lobby, they have adopted a new name: ART33.

Seventeen-year-old Amy Prinse is a CSS student whose work was accepted into the show. She submitted a black-and-white photo, shot with a film camera that she titled Hall Pass.

The goal was to capture movement.

“It was during class and I caught two kids walking down the hall,” she said describing the photo that’s up in the gallery.

The image ended up double-exposed, but it turned into a fortuitous mistake for the young photographer.

“When I developed the film I realized I must have double-shot the frame but it looked really cool because the lights on the ceiling bounced off their heads.”

The teen thoroughly enjoys shooting photo projects for Photo 12 every week.

“I was interested in entering the exhibit to see what people would say about my photo,” she said.

The opening reception was held last Saturday, and ART33 continues at the Cultch until May 12. Chilliwack Art Gallery hours: Wednesday to Saturday – noon to 5:00 p.m., and open during some theatre shows and special events. (604) 392-8000.
