2019 Solanco District Art Exhibition
The 2019 Solanco District Art Exhibition in the C.X. Carlson Room at the Quarryville Library features works in diverse two-dimensional and three-dimensional media produced by students from Bart-Colerain, Clermont, Providence, and Quarryville elementary schools, George A. Smith Middle School, Swift Middle School, and Solanco High School.
Select 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 highlight excellent work from students in grades 6-8 from the 2018-2019 school year.
Solanco High School works honor numerous young artists, which includes artists whose work has been featured in the National Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery, and The New School/Parsons School of Design Gallery in New York City. Many of the works on view in the C.X. Carlson Gallery have been honored with the highest individual awards, as well as senior portfolio awards, in the Scholastic Art Awards and Lancaster County Young Artist Awards. Several works in the exhibition have been juried into the Teen Art Exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and have been in exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Hamilton Club of Lancaster, Millersville University, the Lancaster Museum of Art, and the Demuth Museum in Lancaster, PA. Seniors whose work is on view in the exhibition have been distinguished with portfolio scholarships from the most selective professional visual arts schools in the U.S. Artists highlighted in the show have also been awarded the C.X. Carlson Portfolio Scholarship, the Red Raven Art Company Portfolio Scholarship, the Lancaster County Art Association Portfolio Scholarship, and have been featured as emerging artists at the Red Raven Art Company in Lancaster, PA. and featured in the Lancaster Newspapers and Lancaster Online.
The 2019 Solanco District Art 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. 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 excited to be a part of the 2019 Solanco District Art Exhibition at the Quarryville Library.
