Those voting in Tuesday’s Primary Election got a treat if their polls were at Hailey’s Community Campus.

Budding artists hung the Wood River High School AP Art Show just in time for the election, showcasing some of the creative ways high school students are choosing to express themselves through collage, printmaking and other mediums.

Among the artists:

Audrey Hernandez captures a fish out of water in “Colorful Catch.”

Bill Smith, who is obsessed with the idea of the “perfect moment” where individuals perform at their absolute greatest. “My artwork aims to catch that moment into the “perfect picture,” he says.

Hunter Ervin, who plans to study illustration at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.  Ervin’s samples focus on Idaho landscapes in which the artist took a photo, then digitally drew an outline, developing digital linework that can be used as a guideline for the paintings. A projector then displays the lines on canvas, which are traced over with pencil or ink before being painted over.

Sebastian Hernandez-Tello, who hopes to go to the College of Southern Idaho to study art and music. Hernandez-Tello works in print making, colored pencils and tempura painting: “I just want to be able to create everything that comes to mind and not have trouble trying to make those imaginations come to life.”

Brooke Wilde, who hung three pieces that convey the conflicting feelings she’s had about world politics, current events and social normal and expectations.

Sebastian Hernandez-Tello captures self in this creative piece.

Reese Herold, who got into makeup during the COVID pandemic and attended a Cinema Makeup School two years ago. She would like to work in makeup and special effects in the film and TV industry.

Audrey Hernandez, who starred as Wendy in Footlight Dance Centre’s recent staging of “Peter Pan.” She plans to major in Data Science at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Wash., but she is intrigued by all forms of arts, including creative writing, acting and visual arts.

Skylar McCord, who has moved away from figures and animals to landscapes, hoping to make viewers feel something when they look at his pieces.

Brooke Wilde examines how media and current events can overwhelm an individual’s emotions, values and cognitive bias in “Exclamation.”

Brooke Wilde’s “Period” examines escapism and going against conventionalism.
