Exhibit at Nazareth celebrates art educators and talented students

Published May 24, 2018

The Nazareth College Department of Art is pleased to present an annual exhibit, Shared Spaces, with an opening reception on Friday, June 1 at 5 p.m. in the Arts Center Gallery. The exhibit runs through Saturday, June 16 with different hours each day.

Shared Spaces is an annual high school art teacher/student show designed to celebrate the unique apprenticeship process that occurs between teacher and student. Each teacher submits one piece of his/her own work that was created within the last three years and selects one student to present their work side-by-side. To honor the concept of gallery space being equal, the work is displayed without identifying whether a teacher or a student created it.

"Shared Spaces was designed to promote art education in our schools," said Laurie Warnett, art teacher at Fairport High School and past participant. "Show your support for art in public and private schools by coming to the exhibit!"

The exhibit will showcase the work of more than 50 local teachers and students in a variety of media including sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, metals, ceramics, and drawing. Some works will also be available for sale.
