           BUFFALO, NY: Over 160 art works by Juniors and Seniors from 34 high schools throughout Western New York are on view at the Janette Goldman/Carolyn Greenfield Gallery in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) on the Daemen College campus, through March 19.

 

The works, which represent the crème de la crème of young, aspiring visual artists, are part of the VPA’s annual ALL HIGH exhibit, which is open to junior and senior high school students throughout WNY.

  

           “The show is an annual chance to recognize artistic achievements of our local high school students and their teachers,” said Brian Hammer, gallery coordinator and an instructor of art history at Daemen College. “Every year the show seems to grow, in terms of the number, variety and quality of works.”

  

           The works are awarded prizes in various categories according to media, adds Hammer, “so that as well as an award for Best in Show, we award prizes in categories such as Best traditional photography; Best digital photo; Best mixed media; Best drawing/illustration; Best graphic design; Best painting; Best three dimensional.” A Society of Artists Award is also given, and ten honorable mentions were also awarded in 2010.

  

           A full list of this year’s award winning artists and honorable mentions are available on request.

 

           THE VISUAL AND PERFORMING ART DEPARTMENT AT DAEMEN COLLEGE ALL HIGH SHOW runs through Saturday, March 19 in Goldman/Greenfield Art Gallery, 4380 Main Street.  Gallery hours: Monday Saturday 9.00 5.00PM. Information: 839-8241.
