Fresh creativity combined with guidance from seasoned art experts - “Raw” is sure to be an interesting exhibit.
“Raw” will be on display through Sunday, July 3, 2011 at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. The exhibit was organized by the 2011 Future Curators team - 14 young artists, art historians, writers and musicians in grades 11 and 12.
Future Curators is an Albright-Knox program that allows students to learn about the behind-the-scenes work of being a curator. They come weekly after school to work with staff members at the museum to narrow down submissions for exhibits, plan the opening reception, and everything in between. This year’s team has a broad base, with students from nine different schools, and has been working together since January 2011.
The team consists of:
• Benjamin Almeter - St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute
• Jordan Bianchi - Clarence High School
• Chelsea Butkowski - Kenmore East High School
• Emily Carlson - Nichols School
• Kellie Corwin - Nichols School
• Amanda Equils - Niagara Wheatfield Senior High School
• Kimberly Floyd - East Aurora High School
• Leigh Ann Gantz - Kenmore West High School
• Alexandra Gerbec - Kenmore East High School
• Samantha Kahn - Grand Island High School
• Catherine Mucci - City Honors School
• Casey Schultz - St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute
• Matthew Stepien - Williamsville East High School
• Migella Sterlace-Accorsi - East Aurora High School
“Raw,” promotes introspection and rejects technology and “the commonplace and the ordinary.” The works are meant to suggest specific emotional states and recall the time before technology ran amok.
This exhibit is sure to be a treat - support the Future Curators team by coming out to see. For more information on gallery hours and admission, check out their website.
