ACAC presents work by instructors and students in February

The Adams County Arts Council will feature their annual Instructors Show and All County Student Show during the month of February. A First Friday opening reception is scheduled for Friday, February 4, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and is open to the public. The Adams County Arts Council will be participating in the First Friday Chocolate walk. The wearing of masks is encouraged.

The Instructors Show, exhibited in the Gallery, features 2D and 3D artwork relating to some of the classes offered at the ACAC’s Arts Education Center throughout the year. Arts Council Program and Gallery Director, Wendy Heiges, says “stopping by to see the show is a great way to get to know a bit about our instructors and enjoy their original artwork inspired by the classes they teach at the AECenter. We hope the show encourages you to take a class with us.”

The All-County Student Show exhibited in the Reception Hall features artwork by selected high school students from Bermudian Springs, Fairfield, Gettysburg, Littlestown, Biglerville and New Oxford High Schools. New Oxford’s Art Teacher, Amy Slonaker, says, “This is what it’s all about! Opportunities to recognize students by showcasing their talent and love for creating is a high priority at New Oxford High School. We are excited to be back in school full time to generate ideas so students can explore and produce their own works of art.” 

Isabelle Kirkpatrick, a senior at New Oxford High School says, “I focused on realism and created portraits of my family members this year as I coped with loss and illness. It means the world to me to be able to display my work and encourage young artists who are going through difficult times to use their art as a form of expression and coping.”
