    When the Wilson High School campus
    was renovated in the late '90s, plans
    were made for the inclusion of gallery
    space to be located in the
    administrative wing of the building.
    The Grandview Gallery was founded in
    2001 in what was at one time the
    library of Wilson High School.
    The purpose of the Gallery is to be a
    school and community educational
    resource. Local artists, craftspeople,
    former students and faculty proudly
    display their work.
    There is an opening reception the first
    Sunday of each month (except
    January) during the school year.
    Anyone interested in displaying
    artwork in the Gallery may contact
    Julie Umbenhauer, Grandview Gallery
    Calling anyone who likes to take photographs!!
    Now is your chance to be an artist. Whether you are already an artist or you would just like a chance to be one for a month, this show is for you.
    -         Must be a Wilson faculty or staff member.
    -         Photos up to size 18x24 will be accepted. Photographs should be matted
          or framed (by the artist).
    -         Most subject matter accepted – realistic, landscape, abstract, etc. Please
          keep appropriate since it is in a school.
    -         Each participant may submit up to 3 photographs.

           There will be an opening reception on Sunday, November 6th from 1-2:30.
    -         All photographs must be submitted to your school’s art teacher no later
           than Wednesday, October 26, 2011. Please see your school’s art teacher
           for a submission form and a detailed information sheet. 
    The Grandview Gallery is putting together a Photography Show! It is open to all Wilson faculty and staff. You do not have to be an artist! You could have taken a picture with the intent of it being artwork, or maybe you were on a family vacation taking a picture and it turned out really cool!
    We want to get as many photographs as possible to have a HUGE collage of photos!! So get those cameras going this summer and start taking great pictures!
