The integrated K-12 “Rock-n-Roll Art Show” will be held on Fri., May 11 at 5 p.m. at Warwick Valley High School, located at 89 Sanfordville Rd. in Warwick NY. The event is sponsored by the Warwick Valley Central School District Art Department and the Warwick Art Club Booster. Student art work will be on display throughout the main lobby, old gym, north café and adjoining hallways. The district-wide art show will consist of works from kindergarten through 12th grade. The popular “Newspaper Dress” Fashion show will take place at 6:30 p.m.
The 9th annual “Chair Auction” will be held in the high school auditorium beginning at 7:15 p.m. This auction benefits the scholarship fund for Warwick H.S. seniors who plan to pursue art in college. For this event, students have taken an ordinary chair, and over the course of several months, transformed it into a work of art. The chairs are auctioned off to the public with 100% of the proceeds going to participating graduating seniors in the form of scholarships.
The chairs are painted in a style of an art movement, technique or a particular artist. The junior and senior art portfolio class and other juniors and seniors, as well as art department faculty members, will be participating in the event. The chairs will be on display before the auction in the high school lobby. The chairs range wildly in style and themes. This year the art teachers are creating one of a kind birdhouses also up for auction.
