Cazenovia Stone Quarry Hill Art Park recently announced the season opening exhibition, “Celebrating Creative Achievements of Cazenovia High School,” will feature artistic works from the portfolios of local high school art students.
An opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 4. The public is welcome to attend.
“The artistic talent on display is remarkable and a tribute to the students, as well as the Cazenovia High School Fine Arts Department faculty members,” said SQHAP Director Sarah Webster. “It’s a clear demonstration connecting art in the classroom to the real world, providing students an opportunity to use a variety of media to express themselves.”
The exhibition will run from Thursday, May 3, through Sunday, May 27, in the John and Virginia Winner Memorial Art Gallery. The gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. every Thursday through Sunday, or by appointment.
The show will feature selected pieces from the portfolios of Paige Biviano, Jessica Bubb, Eric Bushnell, Megan Cooney, Rebecca Hahn, Lacey Homik, Alaina Kelahan, Logan Koennecke, Dylan Muller, Katelyn Parella, Emmajean Spear, Alex Szlamcynski, Molly Woodworth and Noah Zinsmeister.
“We are very pleased to host this student exhibit. It’s inspiring to see and share their artistic accomplishments,” said John Hunt, president of the SQHAP Board of Directors.
SQHAP, which consists of 104 acres of land and more than four miles of hiking trails in Cazenovia, is one of the first outdoor sculpture parks in the U.S. In 2011, the Art Park celebrated its 20th anniversary and was named among the top 10 sculpture parks and trails by National Geographic.
Inspired by the relationship between art and nature, SQHAP seeks to educate and engage the public through exhibitions, collection, interpretation and community outreach programs in the arts.
