“The exhibition celebrates the creativity and critical thinking of students as they envision, explore, engage, persist, and reflect upon their ideas as they represent and interact with the world around them,” Solanco High School art teacher Candace Rakers said. “The show honors the commitment and courage of students in crafting their stories and achieving outstanding success. The exhibition also honors the dedication and expertise of educators who provide opportunities for increasing levels of sophistication and confidence in the development of each student’s voice. Solanco students and educators alike are honored and thrilled to be a part of the 2018 Solanco District Art Exhibition at the Quarryville Library.”

Select excellent elementary works included in the exhibition were exhibited earlier this year at the Winter Center for the Visual and Performing Arts at Millersville University as part of the Studio for Students program. Middle school works will highlight excellent work from students in grades 6-8 from the 2017-2018 school year.

Solanco High School works will feature outstanding 2018 Portfolio Scholarship Award winning work featured at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Scholastic Art Awards and Young Artists Awards winning works that were honored with Special Awards, Gold, Silver, and Honorable Mention Awards featured at the Lancaster Museum of Art and the Demuth Museum will be highlighted. Individual works in the diverse categories of drawing, painting, mixed-media, jewelry, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, film photography and digital photography will be represented. Several students with works on view in the exhibition have been honored with portfolio scholarships from the most selective professional Visual Arts schools in the United States.
