Maddy Epping and Lydia Guo are among 17 Iowa City West High School students whose art is featured in Veridian Credit Union’s ArtShare exhibit. The collection was unveiled at an ArtShare Premiere on Monday, February 27 at the credit union’s Coralville branch, where all 20 pieces will remain on display for one year.

Iowa City West High School students, educators and administrators gathered at Veridian Credit Union’s Coralville branch on Monday to celebrate a public exhibit of student art. West High art teachers choose 20 pieces which will remain on public display for one year as part of the ArtShare program.

ArtShare was designed by Veridian to give a public forum to local student artists, and to celebrate and raise awareness of their talent. The credit union partners with 10 Iowa high schools each year to host student art exhibits at five branches across the state.

“It’s our pleasure to recognize these student artists each year,” said Jennifer Roberts, Veridian’s public relations strategist who oversees the program. “ArtShare helps make our branches a more inviting place while giving the artists a broader audience and giving the community a greater appreciation for local talent. Everyone benefits.”

Iowa City West High School students featured in Veridian’s Coralville ArtShare exhibit are: Emily Buck, Hannah Cantrell, Bailey Clingan, Maddy Epping, Lydia Guo, Selina Hua, Aisha Kazembe, Carsyn Knebel, Laura Machlab, Logan McNeal, Will Peterson, Nicole Ritchey, Mason Selk, Micha Smith, Sierra Suiter, Grace Wachter and Angie Zirbes.
