The Warwick Valley Central School District and the Warwick Art Club Booster recently sponsored the 10th Annual Integrated K-12 “Art Rocks” art show and chair auction at the Warwick High School. A Newspaper Dress Fashion Show, created by talented Fashion Design students, was also held.
The District-wide art show included a variety of mediums and artwork from kindergarten through 12th grade. Intricate paintings and drawings, 3D sculptures, thought-provoking photography, functional and imaginative ceramics/pottery, and large-scale collaged portraits were among the artwork found at this year’s show.
The chair auction was another highlight of the event. Chair auction students work tirelessly for several months to transform an ordinary chair into a work of art. All proceeds from the chair auction go to graduating seniors in the form of art scholarships. The total raised in the chair auction was over $5,300.
Visit Baird’s Tavern, located at 105 Main St. in Warwick and check out Rocco Manno’s “Bird’s Tavern” on display. This year the bidding for some chairs began at $30, while others had starting silent bids of over $300.
