Greene County Council on the Arts is proud to present its 38th Annual Youth Arts Exhibition, “Outside the Lines,” featuring artwork by pre-K through Grade 12 students from Greene County public, private and home schools. Outside the Lines 2019 will be on view May 4th to June 8th. The open house will be held on May 4th from 1 to 4 p.m. at 398 Main Street, Catskill, NY.
“Outside the Lines” gives Greene County students the unique opportunity to exhibit their artwork in a professional gallery and allows visitors to see a wide cross-section of the diversity and promise of our county’s young creative talent. The 2019 exhibition is a “masterful presentation with youth art pouring in from all over Greene County, including Cairo-Durham Central School, Catskill Central School District, Early Learning Childhood Center, and Windham-Ashland-Jewett Central School and Homeschooled Schroeder Family.
During the exhibit, the gallery bursts with a kaleidoscope of colors and designs found in students’ paintings, drawings, collages, photographs and mixed media works displayed “salon style” from floor to ceiling along with several fashion designs. Additionally, short clips and videos created by Catskill High School Media Club complete this multi-media exhibition.
“It is the art teachers and administrators who are to be commended for fostering an appreciation of arts among their students and taking the time out of their busy academic schedules to help them prepare and cultivate their talents,” stated Marline A. Martin, GCCA’s executive director. “And, of course, the students and their families whose generosity and creative energy make this an extraordinary annual student art exhibit.”
GCCA’s Catskill Gallery, located at 398 Main Street in Catskill, is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
