Student Art Exhibition "Building Bridges" Opens at Windsor Historicak Society January 10

Event Date/Time

Jan 10, 2013
5:00 pm until 7:00 pm

Description

Student Art Exhibition

For the second year, Windsor High School’s Pre-AP Art students have been inspired by the historic architecture of Windsor’s Palisado Green, the Farmington River bridges, and the more modern structures surrounding the Broad Street Green. See the products of their inspiration in Building Bridges: Windsor Walks, an exhibition created by the art students that opens at the Windsor Historical Society on Thursday, January 10th from 5-7 p.m.  Everyone is invited to a free public reception (delicious refreshments will be served) to meet these talented Windsor students and celebrate the connections they have made between Windsor’s past, present, and future through their art.

 

Again sponsored by the Greater Hartford Arts Council, WHS Curator Christina Vida and Windsor High School art teacher Marjorie Renno guided the 11th-grade students as they toured their town, took digital images, and worked in the studio to craft their works of art. Each work will include representations of architectural elements discovered on their walk through town. “Windsor is blessed with a blend of diverse structures, both historic and modern. We wanted the students to pause and consider how architecture can speak to the community’s past, present, and future,” noted Christina Vida. “This collaboration is a great opportunity for our students to begin to recognize how unique each of their artistic voices truly is,” says Marge Renno.  “They all participated in the same experience, but each were drawn to different elements due to their own personal histories here in town and were able to develop distinctive artworks that reach out to our community, it's the ultimate authentic experience for students of any age.”

 

 

The students also met with West Hartford photographer, Amber Jones, of Studio Pura, to learn techniques for photographing their own artworks. These images will be posted on the Society’s website and also submitted to the AP Board in their senior year. Later this winter, the students will meet with Windsor metal artist Lon Pelton to discuss his sources for artistic inspiration.

 

Physically experiencing historical artifacts, architecture, and landscape provided immediacy and inspiration. Sketches and digital images that students made on the field trips serve as the inspiration for their own artworks that will be exhibited in the Society’s meeting room from January 10th through March 2rd.   

 

Throughout the project, students have been building bridges between inspiration sources and finished art, historic architecture and modern structures, and art and history.  The students will build generational bridges as well by leading a tour of the exhibit for seniors from the Adult Day Health Center after installing their works at the Society.  Don’t miss the opportunity to build your own bridge to this project by attending the exhibition’s opening at the Society on January 10th at 5 p.m.

 

Windsor Historical Society is located at 96 Palisado Avenue (Route 159) and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.  General admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students, and free to children under 12 and WHS members.  Call (860) 688-3813 or visit us on the web at www.windsorhistoricalsociety.org for directions to the Society and more information about programs.  To receive e-reminders for public programs, please send your e-mail address to jalberti@windsorhistoricalsociety.org.
