The Earlville Galleries will celebrate the amazing artwork of young artists in the Central New York community with its 12th Annual TeensART Exhibit, generously sponsored this year by Tom Morris DMD of Family Dentistry in Norwich. A reception for the artists, their teachers, friends and families will be held on Saturday, March 19, from 12-3 pm.
The exhibit showcases the artwork of students in grades 6 of 12 from eleven participating schools this year. This year’s teachers who will curate the work of their students for participation in the exhibit will be: Julie Frear and Adam Reynolds of Cazenovia, Ashley Stagner of Hamilton, Micheal Flint of Madison, Karin Howlett of Morrisville-Eaton H, Jon Vaughn of New Hartford Senior High, Laurie Clark of New Life Christian, Barbara Dwyer and Wayne Franklin of Norwich HS, Matt Wilson of Norwich Middle School, Heather Cigeroglu of Oneida High, Jackie Craine and Kristian Newman of Sherburne-Earlville, Tresta Smith and Linda Salta of Unadilla Valley and Mary Beth McGuire of Waterville HS.
Come and vote for best of show! The top three artists garnering the most votes will receive prizes donated by Golden Artist Colors.
Two other exhibits will also be on display at the Earlville Galleries: DARWIN’S FINCHES by Eloisa Guanlao in the East Gallery asks: Who benefits when technology expands and natural resources are consumed? Who suffers? What could we gain, as a society, from scrutinizing the impact of technological innovation? These questions and more form the nexus of Eloisa Guanlao’s exhibition DARWIN’S FINCHES, which juxtaposes photographs of live and expired birds alongside Smartphone “measuring rulers” to create ambrotypes– literal fossilized records of the bird’s existence and a reminder of the myopia of 19th century positivist science.
ON THE CURVE by Judith Present in the Arts Cafe Gallery his series deals with the deviation of the straight line, to create movement where once there was stagnation. Using different curves and the way they flow I have transformed the images into dances. All three exhibits will run through April 30.
