Dansville ArtWorks hosts its annual Student Art Showcase January 4-February 23, with support from this year’s sponsor, the Dansville Festival of Balloons Ltd. More than 75 artworks were submitted by students from Dansville, Wayland-Cohocton and York schools with the cooperation of art educators and parents. The exhibit is open to youth in grades K-12 from public, private and home schools in our area.
“In keeping with our mission, the Student Art Showcase was established to highlight and celebrate the visual art talent of youth in our region and encourage all young artists,” states board president Nicole Alioto. “Additionally this year, four $25 Best of Show prizes and one People’s Choice award will be given at a reception on Saturday, January 26, 3-4pm. Youth who missed this year’s opportunity should watch for the Call for Art in late November, which will appear on our Facebook page, website and at the arts center.”
Visitors are welcome to view the exhibit Thursday, Friday and Saturday weekly and vote for their favorite in the People’s Choice Award. Light refreshments will be served at the reception (open to the public/free), compliments of the exhibit sponsor, Dansville Festival of Balloons Ltd.
Also currently exhibited at Dansville ArtWorks is a collection of Mert Wager’s originals and prints, all of which are available for purchase.
