Over a dozen Canterbury students were chosen to have their work displayed at the Hunt Hill Farm Art Gallery in New Milford along with student-artists from several other high schools in the area. The show, "Emerging Artists," features paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramic work by students in the Fine Arts Department.
Lily Li '18 won The Hunt Hill Farm Emerging Artist Award for Sculpture, the top show award, for a sculpture she created using a hardcover book as the base for the piece surrounded by barbed wire and cut outs of the paper inside, reinterpreted to tell a news story.
"We're very proud of her work," said Fine Arts Department Chair Kim Tester. "We are excited to see where her creativity takes her as she begins her collegiate career at Rhode Island School of Design in the fall."
Additional students whose art is exhibited in the show include Brigida Caruso '20, Nova Chen '19, Mimi Dattilo '19, Alexa Esposito '20, Meg Francis '18, Shannon Gao '21, Jackson Griebel '19, Shane Haggerty '19, Lilly Hoeniger '18, Lily Li '18, Chamonix McAdam '18, Kalie Mandler '19, JJ Maxwell '20, Betsy Ondrey '21, Jami Procanik '19, David Radcliffe '18, Jess Stolfi '18, Sara Stone '19, and Michaela Stowell '19.
The show is open to the public and will run through Saturday, April 21 at the Silo Gallery at Hunt Hill Farm.
