16 Holy Ghost Prep artists exhibit their work in Bucks County

Sixteen HGP student artists have their work displayed in two Bucks County exhibits, the Phillips Mill Youth Art Exhibit in New Hope and the “Emergence” show in Bristol, during January and February of 2017.

The Phillips Mill Youth Art Exhibit is in its fourth year. This community gallery, located in New Hope, Pennsylvania, invites schools within a 30-mile radius of “the mill” to participate. The show is adjudicated and prizes are awarded in several categories. This year, Daniel Pawluczyk, Cooper Pandorf, Callahan Lennon, Dante DeSanctis, Kevin Dineen and Jacob Lawall will exhibit in the painting, mixed media and drawing categories. HGP senior Daniel Pawluczyk won honorable mention for his acrylic painting. The reception is Saturday, January 21, 2017. The show runs consecutive weekends through mid-February.

The first-ever student show at Centre for Arts, located on Mill Street in Bristol, Pennsylvania, is called “Emergence.” This is an exciting opportunity for 10 HGP artists who have works on display in the categories of painting, intaglio printmaking, and relief printmaking. The exhibitors are Garrison Moore, Christopher Aileo, Austin Moran, Owen Yake, Jack LaRosa, Luke Wade, Eric Lorenzo, Patrick Oniate, Piotr Cymbalski, and Xincheng (Jack) Zhou. Prizes were awarded and artists recognized at a reception on Thursday evening, January 19, 2017.  

In addition to Holy Ghost Prep, the art exhibit featured works from student artists representing Bensalem, Bristol, Harry S. Truman, Conwell-Egan, Nazareth Academy and Neshaminy High Schools. Junior Christopher Aileo received a best in show award at the “Emergence” reception for his linoleum print work, while senior Eric Lorenzo earned an all-honorable mention selection from the judges for his oil painting.

Mrs. Karen Smallen is the visual art teacher and chair of the fine arts department at Holy Ghost Prep.
