“The exhibition will provide our IB seniors with an opportunity to visually communicate their own expression or voice through their curation of personal artworks and many provide the public the chance to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork,”
said Nogales High School Art Teacher Robert Sotello.
Each student must display eight to 10 art selections and are anxious to see how the public will respond to their art form and theme.
Nogales High School IB Student Solo Exhibitions:

Watercolor and colored pencil
“My journey of self-discovery.”
“Depicting all types of love – romantic, family, friend and even animal love.”
“Women Overcoming Limits”
– Clay and watercolor
“Sculptures depict that objectification limits the capabilities of women. Watercolors show how women overcoming barriers – women being happy, free and themselves.”
“My body of work portrays different obstacles that everyone goes through in life. Some obstacles are personal to me, but even my personal struggles can be relevant to others which makes my theme universal.”
"Me & You"
“Can't appreciate the light without a little dark.”
Rowland High School IB Student Solo Exhibitions:
“Legendary people, legendary thoughts, all rolled into one.”
“Who Am I?, Who Are You?, Who Are We?”
“Knowing how to love yourself enables you to be the best version of yourself. If you don't love yourself, how can you expect others to love you?”
