Centre County High School Seniors’ Artwork on Display

BELLEFONTE — Residents are invited to Bellefonte Art Museum's Windows Gallery to witness the artistic talent of seniors from the county's five school districts. The "Class of 2017 Art Show: The Future of Art in Centre County" exhibit runs through Sunday, May 28.

Each year, the museum invites 12th-grade artists to show their work in the gallery. The experience provides the students with a show in the main display space of a museum, and serves to launch them into further art-related challenges.

“As a community museum, this is one of the most important shows we mount each year,” said Pat House, director of the museum. “We want our student artists to know we value and care about them and their work, and we wish them all the best as they pursue further studies and training in art and other fields.”

The museum also distributes scholarships of $50 to three students featured the show. A panel of local artists will determine the winners. The panel also is charged with writing critiques of each piece of work, assisting the young artists in seeing their work more clearly and giving them advice for how they may be able to improve.

Students with work in the show include:

■ State College Area School District — Nick Brooks, Lena Nyblade, Thomas Braustetter, Aubry McElrath, Hannah Lewis, Lydia Woolen, Tracey Lui, Grant Donaghia, Julia Ma, Hanna Hu, Jessica R. and Sofi Skidgel

■ Bellefonte Area School District — Wylan McCullough, Brinsley Blair, Sarah Bryan and Alex Spangler

■ Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District — Matt Bordas, Tristin Croyle, Jessica Eason, Alexis Hynd and Dorian Socoski

■ Bald Eagle Area School District — Madison Roan, Destiny Brower, Carson Spence, Caleigh Poorman, Alan Heaton, Shania Moore, Curtis Clouser, Savannah Elder, Allison Hess, Hannah Hemphill, Trisha Schaffer and Colton Lucas

■ Penns Valley Area School District — Sheri Bowersox, Abigail Thorn, Abigail DeVall, Hailee Wingard, Christine Addis, Taylor Hettinger and Ayva Kunes.
