Collaged Connections and Surrealist Reality with Lee Lyon and Ariel Blanchard, Cedar Ridge HS IB Art Show

March 1, 2023

The first of the Cedar Ridge High School International Baccalaureate Senior Art Student Shows, featuring work by Lee Lyons and Ariel Blanchard.

From Lee:
Inspired by the viewer-centric philosophy of the Neo-Dadaists, my body of work was created as an opportunity for self-exploration on the part of the viewer. Using papier collé as my medium to express my take on the human experience, I created artworks that encapsulate what it means to reflect upon one’s role in both the natural and manmade worlds.

From Ariel:
My collection of art will explore different surrealist ideas. I was inspired by the early Surrealist movement along with artists such as Max Ernst, René Magritte, and Salvador Dali. The focus is on the exploration of parts of the human body through a surrealist lens.

Show runs February 15 through March 5, with a public reception during the February Last Friday Art Walk, Friday, February 24.

This show will be followed with a 2nd showing of work from senior Cedar Ridge High School senior IB art students, Kendall Criffield and Eva Charbois, from March 8 through March 26.

There are two more senior art students showing their work at the Hillsborough Arts Council.
