Bayly Art Museum "Early Visions" Participants Exhibit Photographs At Charlottesville High School

May 31, 2001-- Photographs by Charlottesville High School student participants in the Bayly Art Museum "Early Visions" program will be exhibited at the CHS school's media center from Wednesday, May 30 to Friday, July 1. The public is invited to view the photographs, by appointment only, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. To see the exhibition, contact Jane Anne Young at the Bayly Art Museum, (804) 924-7458.

The photographs, a project by the CHS 10th-grade students who participated in the "Early Visions" program, were inspired by the Bayly exhibition "Abelardo Morell and the Camera Eye." The students studied the works of the Cuban-born photographer known for depicting everyday objects and occurrences with magical and poetic qualities, with U.Va. student mentors during the eight-week program. Decoding Morell's visual language the students snapped their own view of everyday objects and scenes, using disposable cameras.

"They learned to look at their world through a different eye and created amazing photographs," said Jane Anne Young, Bayly Art Museum director of education.

The "Early Visions" program, designed to help challenged high school students working at grade level find avenues to express themselves, reinforces curriculum with emphasis on Standards of Learning, stresses problem-solving and critical-thinking skills through art and visual learning opportunities.

Stubblefield Photo Lab of Charlottesville donated the processing and printing.
