The seventh annual Teen Arts Jam is now going on at Caldwell College’s Visceglia Gallery and there are works by 20 Verona High School students on display: Morgan Plessner, Olivia Marino, Julia Frazee, Arissa Dickison, Kate Percevault, Conor Lawless, Kelsey Mitchell, Ashley Stockwell, Melanie Smith, Hannah Dayan, Nicholas Looney, Adara Blaney, Brianna Cifaretto, Alison Sprong, Meghan Burnham, Mark Gomez, Michael Bartell, Mathew Bartell, Kris Jones and Fernando Padilla. The pieces range photography, to sculpture, still life, portraiture, assemblage, figure drawing, ceramics, and DVD presentations.
The Teen Arts Jam is a juried show designed to advance students’ ideas and skills in the visual arts, and provide an opportunity to share their work with the community. Eighteen area high schools have sent in student art. This year’s jurors are Liz Seaton and Tony Cuneo from the faculty of the Yard School of Art at the Montclair Art Museum. Prizes include art supplies certificates from Jerry’s Art Outlet and six Caldwell College scholarship awards of $1,000 if the student chooses to attend Caldwell.
The works are on display until Wednesday, February 29. That evening, there will be a reception for the artists, their teachers and supporters, and an awards ceremony. The Visceglia Gallery is located in the Student Center on the Caldwell College campus. For directions, click here.
