Peters Valley School of Craft is excited to announce the return of the Annual High School Student Exhibition for its 13th year. The exhibition will be in the Sally D. Francisco Gallery from February 4th through 27th , with an opening reception to be held in person from 3-5pm on Saturday, February 4th. This annual exhibition showcases work from local high school students in the Delaware Water Gap region, grade 9 – 12, working in 2D and 3D craft media.
The 13th Annual Student Exhibition will feature works from Blair Academy, Delaware Valley, Fort Lee, High Point Regional, Kittatinny Regional, Newton, Randolph, Sayreville War Memorial, Sparta, Wallkill Valley Regional, and Watchung Hills Regional High Schools.
Work ranges from ceramics, painting, photography, collage, textiles, jewelry, to mixed media sculptures providing a well rounded display for viewers. As an educational center, it is Peters Valley’s mission to cultivate the next generation of fine craft artists and supporters. By hosting this exhibition we are encouraging young artists to not only make, but share their work with the world in a professional gallery setting.
Students are welcome to apply for scholarships directly on our website as well. The Sally D. Francisco Gallery is delighted to showcase and promote the students’ work in the distinguished gallery setting it is known for.
