Where are they now? A look at our Featured Artists

We are excited to announce this year’s featured artist for our 11th Annual Scholarship Benefit – Oliver Chanax, class of 2012. Oliver has circled back to De Marillac as a volunteer assistant teacher for the art enrichment class. He is currently studying Graphic Design at City College of San Francisco and hopes to gain professional experience in a number of arenas, with sights on working in animation for a major company such as Pixar.

At De Marillac, we emphasize this notion of community and family that takes on many forms of support beyond graduating. Being a featured artist is an honor that has helped our Alumni advance their career in the arts; and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to reconnect with them. In the spirit of celebrating another year of partnered success in providing opportunity for De Marillac’s students and families; here are the featured artists from the previous years, and a glimpse of what they are up to now.

Ana Karen, class of 2004, is a studio artist making appearances in art galleries throughout the bay area. Her latest appearance was at the Purple Waves Art Show, a music and art show featuring Silicon Valley Artists. Ana Karen has graced us again with her unique, vibrant art available at this year’s art auction.
