This years integrated K-12 “Rock-n-Roll Art Show” is at Warwick Valley High School on Fri., May 12 at 5 p.m., sponsored by the WVCSD 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 twelfth grade. The popular “Newspaper dress” Fashion show is at 6:30 p.m.
The 8th annual “Chair Auction” will be held in the high school auditorium beginning at 7:15 p.m. The Chair Auction benefits the scholarship fund for WVHS 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 all proceeds going to 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 20 plus chairs range wildly in style – Harley Davidson, I Love Lucy, Marilyn Monroe, Mosaic and Viking are just a few of the themes. Come early for a sneak peek and to find one or check out the chair auction website to see this year’s chairs at www.warwickartauction.weebly.com or on Facebook at facebook.com/WarwickHSChairAuction.
