2014 High School Invitational Art Exhibition

2014 High School Invitational Art Exhibition

August 25 – October 3, 2014 At Penn State Abington’s Woodland Commons (Adjacent to the Library in the Woodland Building)

Reception 5:30pm – 7:00pm September 18, 2014 Woodland Commons

The Penn State Abington College is pleased to host the Invitational High School

Art Exhibition. Included in this exhibition are works created by high school students from Abington Friends School, Abington Senior High School, Esperanza Academy Charter School, and Germantown Academy. The participating area high schools share a dedication to a balanced curriculum that incorporates skill development, conceptual understanding, and a nurturing of each student’s aesthetic sensibilities. Highlighting this pedagogical methodology, this exhibition features a variety of approaches to subject matter and to media, revealing the multitude of avenues students may venture upon toward artistic individuality. In addition to this shared vision of teaching and learning, the high schools involved are all members of Prints Link Philadelphia. “PLP” (founded in 2009) is a coalition of community arts organizations, art centers, museums, schools and teaching artists who develop curriculum and projects to educate and promote printmaking to children and teens in the Philadelphia region.

This invitational exhibition showcases the strength of work produced by students in area high schools and provides perspective for the range of approaches in technique, media, and conception of many students who will likely move on to further develop their skills in college programs locally, nationally, and abroad.

Robert Lear attended Penn State Abington for two years before earning his bachelor of science in business degree from University Park in 1967. He recently served as Penn State Abington Alumni Society president, and he is currently on the Penn State University Alumni Association Alumni Council. Bertha Lear was Robert’s mother, an artist herself. The art exhibition and endowment, along with the recent addition of a four-year Art degree, demonstrate the Penn State Abington ongoing commitment to promoting the arts.
