MEDFORD >> Lenape High School will transform from school to sophisticated art gallery from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 23 at 235 Hartford Road here.
The school will display more than 1,200 original pieces created by Lenape student artists this year. Art in this year’s show ranges from sculpture and ceramics to fine arts mediums, such as charcoal, graphite and pen work.
Among the show-stopping contributions are those by student Ryan Bradley, whose illustrative, graphic style has a way of presenting itself through his realistic artwork. As attendees admire the countless standout pieces in this show, they will also enjoy passed hors d'oeuvres and music played by Lenape student musicians. They will have the opportunity to create their own art and purchase prints and original pieces from the Lenape art students.
Twelve Lenape artists will receive Art Excellence awards for their artwork prior to the start of the May 23 show. This year, Lenape administrators will choose the winners. Three students have already been awarded for their work at N.J. Teen Arts, and senior Leah Rivera went on to win at the state N.J. Teen Arts. Such recognitions are a testament to the strength of the arts programs at Lenape and throughout the Lenape Regional High School District.
Cherokee students previously held an art show this month. Seneca students will present their artwork on their campus May 23, and Shawnee High School students will present An Evening of the Arts on May 30.
