Field Trip to the Gmeiner Art Center

Students who competed in the Endless Mountains Regional Art Competition for Teen Artists took a field trip to take in the exhibition of entries at the Gmeiner Art Center in Wellsboro, PA.  Students entered the gallery and saw their artwork, their classmates artwork, and art by other art students from high schools in our region.

After viewing the show, there was an award ceremony, recognizing student winners in each category including Sydney Liechty (1st place in Drawing and 1st place in Painting) and Erica Hutchison (Honorable Mention in Drawing) and Rachel Hutchison (Honorable Mention in Painting).

Next, students were told to pair up with any art student from a different high school for an informal critique.  There were some great conversations going on!

On our way home, we took in a brief tour of Loomis Gallery in Allen Hall at Mansfield University and toured the studios there.

It was a great day for learning about the world of art and the work of an artist.
