Student Artists to Show Off Their Work Aug. 17 at Nancy Cantor Warehouse
Over the course of six weeks, 19 high school students from the Syracuse area have worked under the guidance of Syracuse University graduate students to expand and explore their artistic practices. Through intense and focused study in drawing, painting, digital design and 3-D sculpture, these students have created complex and confident portfolio pieces with a wide range of subject matter: from the personal to the universal and the present to the unknown future. All visual efforts will serve as keys to their future endeavors: particularly in applying to college to pursue degrees in art. With this in mind, an artist presentation and open house will be held Friday, Aug. 17, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Nancy Cantor Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse.
