Artwork with Reception on February 4

CANAJOHARIE, NY—The public is invited to an opening reception for a special exhibition of Canajoharie Central School District students’ artwork on Friday, February 4, from 5 to 7pm.

The exhibition featuring the work of elementary, middle and high school students will remain on display through March 28.

“Forming community/school connections is very important for art education,” said Canajoharie Middle School art teacher Michelle Egelston. “Having the opportunity to display student art work at the Arkell Museum and Canajoharie Library is so wonderful for my students and their families.”

Canajoharie High School art teacher Kathy VanLoan said her students are also looking forward to the show. “My students are thrilled at the prospect of having their work displayed at such a prestigious facility,” said VanLoan. “It will be a wonderful opportunity for them to be involved in the process of exhibiting their work in a public space.”

Both Egelston and VanLoan said they have a wealth of talent and creativity to choose from in selecting works for the show. Many of their students hope to pursue careers in the arts following their formal education.

Work by East Hill Elementary art teacher Keith Baker’s students will also be on display.
