Community of Educators Alle-Kiski Arts Consortium exhibit now open

January 19, 2017 by  

The Community of Educators Alle-Kiski Arts Consortium exhibit at Pennsylvania State University is currently displaying art created by art teachers throughout Pennsylvania until January 27th. The exhibit was set up by Deer Lakes High School art teacher Christy Culp and St. Joseph High School art teacher Kathleen Guglielmi.

Culp was quoted in Trib Live saying:

“Knowing their teachers are passionate makers helps inform their attitudes toward art, art making and how to incorporate art into a personal way of life. I want my students to learn how to embrace that part of them that wants to create and be surrounded by art they love.”

The exhibit includes pieces from teachers such as visual art teacher Prissy Pakulski from Valley High School in New Kensington, advanced art and graphic design photoshop teacher Doug Ward from Springdale High School, and art instructor Lauren McCutcheon from Peters Township High School, near McMurray. Pieces that can be found at the exhibit include a tea set, stained glass windows, and oil paintings.

The exhibit can be found at Pennsylvania State University in the New Kensington Gallery at 3550 7th Street Rd, New Kensington, PA 15068. It will be open from 8 in the morning until 8 at night every weekday and from noon until 5 in the afternoon on the weekends and there will be a special opportunity to meet the teachers on January 26th from 6 to 8 at night. Admission is free.
