an exhibition of artwork created by former and present-day students of 171 Cedar Arts Center
2018 National Youth Art Month Exhibition
171 Cedar Arts Center is pleased to exhibit the artwork of former and present-day students of 171’s visual arts and ceramics programs in Roots & Blossoms. Please join us for the opening reception to celebrate participants, and get an up-close look at artwork on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 4-7 PM (155 Cedar Street, Corning). The reception is free and open to the public.
All visual arts and ceramics students have been invited to enter two- and three-dimensional artwork for this show which will be on display March 9 through 23. This includes artwork created through painting, drawing, and ceramics groups that have been associated with 171, along with past and current faculty members of 171.
Throughout 171’s 50-year history thousands of artists have found inspiration and have shared their talents. 171 has been an artistic springboard for people of all ages. Many discovered an artistic path here, and have followed it throughout their lives; they continue to invest artistic passion in careers and past-times, and devote time to creative self-expression.
Our wish is to celebrate how 171’s teaching artists have influenced others. There is still time to display work. If you are proud of what you have created (or what a family member has made), and your work was encouraged through 171 in some way, then we hope you will consider sharing a brief story and examples of your work. We’re seeking loans of artwork for this exhibition, and artwork can be sold (not a requirement).
