Teen-Age Talent 2017
The Johnson-Humrickhouse is pleased to present Teen-Age Talent on April 1 through April 30. This special exhibit features over 100 works by 45 artists from local high schools. Participating high schools include Coshocton, Ridgewood, Coshocton Christian, Coshocton Opportunity, and home schools. Overall the exhibit is composed of a variety of media, from watercolors, acrylics and pastels, to photography, printmaking and 3-D.
Works for Teen-Age Talent were chosen for their outstanding quality by art teachers Myrtle Beall (Coshocton HS), Carissa Dickerson (Ridgewood HS), Raylene DeLuca (Coshocton Christian School and home school), and Joan Staufer (Coshocton Opportunity School and home school ). The artwork will be judged in three categories: Two-dimensional, 3-Dimensional, and Graphic Arts. Judges for the show are Dr. Yan Sun (Muskingum University art professor) and Todd Malenke (artist)
A special display of artwork by Chinese high schoolers will also be exhibited. On a recent trip to China Dr. Yan Sun collected thirteen works for display. It will be interesting to see how these works differ in subject matter and style from those created by Coshocton County students.
With good reason Teen-Age Talent has been a favorite exhibit for 27 years. Museum hours through May are 12:00 to 4:00 P.M. Tuesday through Sunday. During the month of April the museum is offering One Dollar Wednesday to Coshocton County residents. Admission will be $1 for adults and free for students. Teen-Age Talent is sponsored by MFM Building Products Corp. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
