Works by 13 high school artists on exhibition

For Immediate Release:  May 6, 2015

BLOOMSBURG — Artwork by 13 area high school students will be exhibited in Bloomsburg University’s Haas Gallery of Art from May 13 to June 15.

Faculty from BU’s Department of Art and Art History selected the works based on portfolio reviews at the end of the spring semester.

Included in the exhibition are works by:

  • Evie Allport, Kayley Dillon, Breanna Fowler and Vincent Kuhar, all from Bloomsburg Area High School
  • Lexus Mordan and Briana Wakefield, both from Millville High School
  • Ahlena Davies, Julia Shipe, Rachel Snyder, Hadley Wiktor and Linda Yang, all from Danville Area High School
  • Savannah Scherer and Olivia Greene, both from Southern Columbia Area High School

The names of three students selected for tuition scholarship awards to BU will be announced during a reception and awards ceremony Wednesday, May 13, at 6 p.m. in the Haas Gallery. This portfolio review and tuition scholarship program is possible thanks to the generosity of a Bloomsburg community donor who was inspired by First Columbia Bank’s Teen Star Competition.

The high school art show will also be displayed in the Stairwell Gallery of The Exchange in downtown Bloomsburg from June 29 to Aug. 14.
