Friedman Art Gallery Virtual High School Art Exhibit
February 25 @ 9:00 am - May 7 @ 9:00 am EST
Virtual High School Art Exhibit Sponsored by the Penn State Wilkes-Barre
Friedman Art Gallery.
Since April 2017, the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Friedman Art Gallery in
Lehman, PA has been hosting annual art exhibits by local high school
artists. Because of the current health concerns, virtual classes, limited
access to the Friedman Art Gallery, and other mandated protocols that
continue to affect our educational systems, especially the arts, we devised
a virtual alternative to promote some local high school artists.
We invited local High School Art Students to submit original artwork for
the first-ever Virtual High School Art Exhibit sponsored by the Penn State
Wilkes-Barre Friedman Art Gallery and the gallery director Jonathan Pineno.
Wilkes-Barre Area School District CAPAA students and Crestwood Area High
School students submitted some of their artworks. The Virtual High School
Art Exhibit is on YouTube, linked to the Friedman Art Gallery Website, Penn
State Wilkes-Barre social media sites, and other local news and media
sources. The YouTube video link is: https://youtu.be/3cQKC4a5evU
Wilkes-Barre Area School District CAPAA Art Teacher Ann Gubitose earned a
Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Graphic Design from Wilkes University and
started her teaching career in 2001. For more information about the CAPAA
program, visit their website at wbasd.k12.pa.us
. “The Wilkes-Barre Area School District CAPAA Visual Arts program is an
intensive art immersion course, designed for high school students who love
to draw, paint, sculpt and express themselves creatively. This program is
designed to offer students an opportunity to develop a strong foundation in
art through the exploration of varied media, techniques, development of
concepts, and connections to art history.”
Crystal Lovett has been teaching art in the Crestwood School District for
the past fifteen years. Along with being the high school art teacher, she
is an advisor for the middle school Student Council. She has a B.S. in Art
Education from Kutztown University and an M.S. in Education from Wilkes
University. The Crestwood School District is “dedicated to respect,
integrity, community, excellence, and teamwork in all (they) do.”
With the opening of the Abram Nesbitt Academic Commons in 2008, Sidney and
Pauline Friedman gifted Penn State Wilkes-Barre with the Friedman Art
Gallery. This gallery space regularly displays the work of students, local
artists, as well as private art collections.
The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Friedman Art Gallery strives to promote,
encourage, and exhibit artworks of professional and amateur artists from
the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus and surrounding communities.
The current Virtual High School Art Exhibit video will be on display in the
Friedman Art Gallery and online through the end of April 2021.
