The Adams County Arts Council will showcase artwork of high-school artists from across Adams County in February for the tenth annual All-County Student Show. The exhibition will feature the best work of some of the county’s most talented high school artists, as selected by Adams County high school art educators from Littlestown, Fairfield, Gettysburg, Bermudian Springs and Biglerville High School.
The exhibition opens Friday, February 5, in the Reception Hall at the Adams County Arts Council’s Arts Education Center, 125 South Washington Street in Gettysburg. The Arts Council will host a First Friday artists’ reception from 5-7:30 p.m. The show will remain hanging through February 26.
This show was developed and created to celebrate youth art and art education in the county. Biglerville High School Art Teacher, Lisa Harman, says, “This year has created challenges for many teachers. Art teachers especially who rely so much on “in person” teaching and using special supplies and tools have had to find creative ways to still get kids making art. Despite hybrid and remote schedules, our students have risen to the occasion and have created some unique work. I am really proud of them.”
