The opening display for the latest VA gallery, Chromaticity.

Visual Art seniors New Chen, Alexis Thomas, La’Daija Bryant, Emma Collins, Michael Chou, Brooks Vessels, Julia Age, Tatiana Neuman and Jamie Esterly hosted this year’s fifth and final art gallery on May 14, 2015, which featured their work from throughout the year.

Chromaticity is the quality of a color as determined by its dominant wavelength and its purity.

Age explained how she and the rest of her group came up with the title Chromaticity for their show.

“We all mutually agreed that chromaticity was nice to the ears and mind,” Age said. “We like that it focuses on colors individually, which gave us a chance to each choose a color that we feel represents our unique personalities.”

Thomas explained how it felt to have her art displayed in a gallery.

“It is an unexplainable feeling to have my work on display,” Thomas said. “Just looking back at my freshman year to now, man, it’s very rewarding and honoring. Senior art shows, to me, is like being commended for all of our hard work and progress throughout high school. I’m so grateful for Visual Arts.”

Age also elaborated on how it felt when she witnessed people viewing her artwork.

“I love seeing and reading the reactions that people have to my creations and the positive feelings that it creates for others,” Age said.
