|On Wednesday, May 25, 2011, over two hundred fifty parents,
teachers and friends joined over one hundred young artists
for the opening of the 2011 High School Juried Exhibition,
displayed in the Mezzanine and Raw Space Gallery of The
Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.
The three jurors, Melissa Meyers of the Ink Well, Nicole Missel
of Allegany Limestone School, and Anne Conroy-Baiter of the
Cattaraugus County Arts Council, were “really impressed with
the quality of the work and honored to be jurors, but it was a
very difficult job.” The jurors also said they were “extremely
proud of area schools that continue to support the art
programs and recognize the importance this has on the future
success of our student artists.”!
Packets of four bookmarks were provided for each artist,
featuring their own 2D and 3D artwork, along with a coupon
for a free sketching set from the Ink Well.
Artwork was chosen from over four hundred entries from
seventeen area schools including Oswayo Valley, Portville,
West Valley, Ellicottville, Wellsville, Bolivar-Richburg, Allegany-
Limestone, Olean, Salamanca, Randolph, Fillmore, Otto-Eldred,
Jamestown, Coudersport, Hinsdale, Friendship and Kane.
