CYPRESS TEXAS — A pair of CFISD artists will have their combined work showcased leading into the district’s Spring Art Exhibit, to be held April 17 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Berry Center (8877 Barker Cypress Road) and is expected to be one of the largest of its kind in Texas.

Cypress Springs High School junior Damaris Haro created the design that has been used to promote the exhibit, themed “Artists in Bloom.” The artwork used in the design, that has been used in fliers, invitations and other promotional items, was created last year by Langham Creek High School senior Tatyana Luna Hawks.

Hawks’ artwork features flower petals in different colors surrounding a person’s face. That along with the exhibit’s theme gave Haro inspiration for his eventual design.

“To me, ‘Artists in Bloom’ captures how students are like flowers, we are still blossoming into our craft and that is where I came up with the idea of petals and spring-like colors,” he said. “There is still much to learn and this design and the meaning behind it captures how I – like other student artists – am still growing into a flower.”

More than 2,500 pieces of art are expected to be on display during the exhibit, with pieces created by students at all grade levels.

“In CFISD, we exemplify ‘opportunity for all’ by offering a quality fine arts education for every grade level at every campus which defines our program’s strengths and sets us apart,” said Lee Carrier, CFISD visual arts coordinator. “Thousands of pieces of artwork on display at the upcoming district-wide exhibit represent student growth and encourage the visual voice of our young artists within our leading program. The free event is open to the CFISD community and welcomes all art lovers.”
