Audie’s Legacy Show Gallery

Audie Love (1941-2015) was the founder and guiding light of the Student Art Fund. As a high school art teacher, Audie provided AP students a strong foundation in art history, life drawing, composition, and 2D/3D design principles. Rarely seen at the high school level, Audie taught his AP students how to build a quality, 40-piece portfolio — an effort that took students three to four years to complete and opened doors to top art schools. Upon graduation, portfolios were submitted to the College Board AP Studio Art Exam. Audie’s joy was to keep connected with his students, especially those who pursued art.

This online show was created by the Student Art Fund as a way to honor Audie by showcasing examples of his former students’ accomplishments since graduating from high school together with examples of Audie’s own artwork. We hope that these images will truly inspire today’s art students. We want them to see how art continues to nourish and sustain Audie’s former students — professionally and personally — during their adult years.

You can view the artists’ individual works and their statements here. Please continue to visit the show, as more images will be added as they are received.
