Traveling through the world of Mongolian and international students

By B.TUNGALAG

American School of Ulaanbaatar is holding their first art show at Marshal Art Gallery. The purpose of the exhibition is to showcase the hard work of 29 students in grades 10 to 12 over the course of the last semester.
Students in the school’s advanced art course chose themes on which to produce a body of art, including everything from storytelling to celebrities. Eleventh grade student Pandu Ekoyudho chose to work with anthropomorphism. He was interested in the idea of fusing elements of human and non-human figures to create intricately detailed pieces, such as his ink drawing, “Amour de l’Automne.”
The majority of American School of Ulaanbaatar’s student body is Mongolian, and this is reflected in their work as well. “She,” a painting by twelfth grader O.Ariunzaya, was produced to express her love and appreciation for the beauty of Mongolian traditional culture.
Rebecca Mutrux teaches the secondary art program at American School of Ulaanbaatar, and organized the exhibition. Last spring she held a similar culminating show within the school, which gave her students a lot of positive feedback. “I have so many talented students, and while I wanted the community to see what they can do, I also wanted them to realize how gifted they are. Seeing your work framed and hung in an art gallery demonstrates that more effectively than a thousand compliments.”
The exhibition will run from January 21 to 23, with the artists conducting activities for classes during the day. There will be a closing reception Friday evening from 4 to 6, with refreshments and a performance by American School of Ulaanbaatar’s a capella singers.
