Teen-Age Talent set to open

| April 5, 2016

COSHOOCTON – The Johnson-Humrickhouse is pleased to present Teen-Age Talent on April 9 through May 8. This special exhibit features 100 works by 50 artists from the county’s high schools. Overall the exhibit is composed of a variety of media, from watercolors, acrylics and pastels, to photography, printmaking and sculpture. A number of remarkable works have an ocean or fish theme such as Mariah Kittell’s Ascending from Obscurity (koi) painted in watercolor, Lauren Hire’s Octopus: Dictionary Entry using watercolor and ink, and Adriana Seiler’s An Octopus’s Home, a seascape in papier-mâché.

Works for Teen-Age Talent were chosen for their outstanding quality by art teachers Myrtle Beall (Coshocton High School), Lacey McKown (River View High School), Carissa Dickerson (Ridgewood High School), Raylene DeLuca (Coshocton Christian School and home school), and Joan Staufer (Coshocton Opportunity School and Alternative School). The artwork will be judged in four categories: Two-dimensional Fine Art, 3-Dimensional, Design, and Black and White Drawing.

All are invited to the artists’ reception on April 8 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Coshocton Christian School has set the theme for the opening: Lots and Lots of Dots, so join in the fun by wearing something with dots. With good reason Teen-Age Talent has been a favorite exhibit for 26 years. Museum hours through April are 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Beginning in April the hours are noon to 5 p.m. One Dollar Wednesday admission is $1 for adults and free for students who are Coshocton County residents. Teen-Age Talent is sponsored by Westmoreland Resource Partners (Oxford Resource Partners). The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
