ACAC Student shows in February

The Adams County Arts Council will feature its annual Instructors Show and All County Student Show during the month of February.  A First Friday opening reception is scheduled for Friday, February 3, 5-7:00 p.m. and is open to the public.

The Instructors Show, exhibited in the Gallery, features 2D and 3D artwork by sixteen ACAC Instructors that relate to some of the classes offered at the ACAC’s Arts Education Center throughout the year. The Arts Council Program and Gallery Director, Wendy Heiges, says, “Our instructors joined our team because they enjoy sharing their love of the arts with our community.  This is a terrific opportunity for you to enjoy their original artwork.  We hope it inspires 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 and Biglerville and New Oxford High Schools.  New Oxford’s Art Teacher, Amy Slonaker, says, “This is what it’s all about! New Oxford High School has a variety of works on display, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, that exhibit the talents of our students.” Featured student artist, Aryanna Giuffrida, a senior at New Oxford High School, is making a name for herself as an artist with a unique vision and stunning visuals that draw the attention from any passerby. Giuffrida’s sculpture shows how she has flourished with her creativity to express herself.
