Over 160 art works by juniors and seniors from some 34 high schools throughout Western New York will be on view at the Haberman Gacioch Center for Visual & Performing Arts on the Daemen College campus, beginning 3 p.m. Sunday, March 3, through Monday, March 25.

 

The All High Art Show features works done in various art forms, representing the best of young, aspiring visual artists from high schools throughout Western New York.

 

“Each year the exhibition is a chance to recognize outstanding artistic achievements of our local high school students and their teachers,” said Dr. Laura Watts Sommer, Daemen director of Visual & Performing Arts. “Every year the show seems to grow in terms of the number, variety, and quality of the artworks that are submitted. It is an impressive display of talent.”

 

The works are awarded prizes in various categories according to the media they are created in, adds Daemen Visual & Performing Arts Adjunct Professor Brian Hammer.  In addition to an award for Best in Show, prizes are also given in categories such as Best Traditional Photography, Best Digital Photo, Best Mixed Media, Best Drawing/Illustration, Best Graphic Design, Best Painting, and Best Three Dimensional. A Society of Artists Award is also given and honorable mentions are also recognized.

 

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

 

Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Information: 839-8241.
