Students unveil "Titled Frit, Fragment, and Fusion: Experiments in Glass" tonight

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Tonight, the Art Association of Jackson Hole and National Museum of Wildlife Art will present an exhibition showcasing the artwork created by the students of The Studio Project. "Titled Frit, Fragment, and Fusion: Experiments in Glass" will be unveiled at the exhibition opening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Art Association’s Gallery on 240 S. Glenwood Street. Since the beginning of February, 11 local high school students from Journeys School, Jackson Hole High School and Jackson Hole Community School have been participating in The Studio Project, an Art Association outreach program taught by Neal Zeren and Grace Davis. In collaboration, The Art Association and National Museum of Wildlife Art created the Studio Project to offer county high school students the opportunity to explore materials and processes not readily available in their classrooms. Through this free course, students have been exposed to a variety of artists and designers while being taught skills in printmaking and glass. "We are pleased to acknowledge the students’ learning, progress, and achievement in the project through the installation of their piece in the Art Association Gallery. The students will introduce the piece on May 16 and welcome family, friends and the community to the celebration," said the Art Association in a release. The culmination of the program will be an exhibition of a collaborative sculpture, incorporating all the artists' work. Each of the students have produced nine smaller works through the mediums of printmaking, cutting, fusing, and aperture, in addition to one large panel. Now, with the help of their instructors, the students have designed a final piece that merges all of their individual work and produces the effect of a harmonious installation piece. *Feature Photo: h/t Art Association of Jackson Hole / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
