CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.

The cafeteria hallway was turned into an art gallery Saturday at Chambersburg Area Senior High School.

Students, parents and friends admired numerous drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, mobiles, pottery and architectural drawings by Chambersburg students, faculty and art alumni.

Many of the displays included the senior portfolios of students who have been inducted into the National Art Honor Society.

The artwork of Raisa Sherman includes landscapes in a variety of media.

Student Mitch McCrea states in his senior portfolio that the concentration and theme for his art is isolation.

"One can isolate an object by using complimentary or opposing colors, by using a dramatic amount of space to surround the object or by changing the object to make it stand out or look out of place," he wrote. "Isolation can add a lot of emotive qualities to the art that gives you a sense of loneliness sometimes."

McCrea, 18, said he plans to spend next year in the mission field with Youth With A Mission, then attend graphic design school. Most of the art he displayed was created during his senior year and some of it in 3-D art classes, he said.
