VHS Creative Arts Festival May 21
The event is sponsored by the VHS chapter of the National Art Honor Society and honor society officers Jessica Parsons, Kelsey Mitchell, Paige Gibson, Sam Garrison and Emily Gagliostro will co-chair the evening’s activities. All VHS art and graphics students will participate by exhibiting their artwork, helping with workshops, and by setting up the displays and decorations for the evening. Terry Sherman, the art teacher, is the faculty adviser for the event.
All of the displays will be set up in the new gym. The evening will feature creative projects made in numerous departments at VHS: art and graphics; woodworking and CAD; English literature; world languages; history, business and marketing; mathematics, science and technology.
The art exhibition features observational drawings and still-life watercolor paintings inspired by artist Marilyn Rose’s watercolor demonstration in the art room this past year. Ceramics and glass mosaics are also on display. The colored glass used in the mosaics was donated by S.A. Bendheim, a wholesale glass distributor in Passaic, New Jersey. Anthony Nicosia, a father of two VHS graduates, arranged this generous donation. Clinton Glass in Verona donated the mirror used by students in their mosaics.
Art students will be demonstrating face and hand decoration in the new gym. Art student Andrew Capuano will be doing caricatures. Hand-made ceramic coasters and potted plants will be sold as a fundraiser for the Verona Chapter of the National Art Honor Society.
The evening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the front lobby with instrumental and vocal performances by VHS band and choral students, under the direction of Amanda Hamilton, Judy Szybist, Max Morden and Erik Lynch. VHS student Ella Yarmo-Gray will be playing the piano in the new gym throughout the evening. At 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium, the VHS Spotlight Players, under the guidance of Fran Young, will perform student directed one-act plays.
The invitation and poster for the Creative Arts Festival was designed by art student Kelsey Mitchell under the guidance of graphics arts teacher Helene McLaughlin. The VHS SCA helped to make this evening possible through its generous donation to the Creative Arts Festival Committee.
