Wharton Student Art Exhibited At The Dali
Four art students from New Tampa’s Paul R. Wharton High have been featured at the newly revamped Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg in an exhibit entitled “Strangely Familiar.” Of course, the outstanding artist Salvador Dali was known as a surrealist, meaning his art shows elements of surprise that most would deem as weird. All of the students featured in the exhibit put forth art that is both appealing and, in many cases, at least somewhat shocking.
Judy Oliveri, Wharton High’s art teacher, says she is proud to have four of her students’ art featured in the exhibit: Adrienne Garcia, Sandy Roy- Gauthier, Briauna Wyant, Jeremy Hernandez- Velez. She says that being displayed at a museum dedicated to one of the most famous artists of all time is a once-in-a-lifetime honor that none of the students featured will forget. The exhibit, which debuted on March 6, will be up through the end of March.
