Sr. Art Show Best in ShowFanciful fish, bright blossoms, surreal dreams (and nightmares) and a monster in need of dental work.  It’s amazing what talented students can translate from their imaginations into paper, digital media, and into sculpture.

All of these and more were on display this year at the annual Senior Art Show, featuring the best works by members of the Rio Rancho High and Cleveland High Class of 2018.  Professional artists evaluated the works on display at Rio Rancho City Hall, and the winners were honored by Mayor Gregg Hull and the art faculty from both high schools.  The top students received cash prizes to go along with the kudos.  At right: ​Warning: ENJOI, ​by Best-In-Show winner Korrin Williams.  

Debbie Fleming and art teachers

In addition to recognizing the students, art teachers gave a special trophy to Debbie Fleming (at center with statute in the photo at left), who is retiring as the district’s Executive Director of Fine Arts at the end of the academic year.  Fleming has helmed the Fine Arts Department since 2006.
