30th Annual “Touch The Future” Juried Art Show Exhibit Honored Current Winners from 30 Bucks and Montgomery County Public High Schools including Harriton High School he 30th Annual “Touch the Future” Juried Art Show, sponsored by the Mideastern Region/Pennsylvania State Education Association (MER/PSEA), and Council for the Advancement of Public Schools, honored outstanding work from students in 14 different categories, paid tribute to the founders of the art show, and acknowledged working artists who got their start in public high schools throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties at an awards ceremony on February 5 at Arcadia University. The event also acknowledges Christa McAuliffe—NASA’s first teacher in space who perished in the Space Shuttle Challenger accident. Winning students came from 13 different high schools and took home more than $2,300 contributed by MER/PSEA, as well as college scholarships to attend Arcadia University. The show also honored its founders, Dave Gondak, Sue Castle, Rosemary Hamilton, Tom Humenski, and Carl Rieffanaugh, who later joined the effort. Over the years, thousands of students have participated in this professionally juried show and gone on to pursue careers in the art world. The chairs also shared profiles of some of those working artists. The show was juried by Grace Ahn Klensin, Assistant Director, Temple University Tyler School of Art. Chairing the show once again were art teachers Lynne Pribis of Upper Dublin High School, Connie Berger of Cheltenham High School, Carly Najera of Bensalem High School, and Terry O’Neill of Neshaminy High School. “This art show never ceases to amaze and is just one example of the incredible range of opportunities offered to students throughout public schools in our region,” noted Linda J. Weaver, PSEA/MER president. “We never know what experience can kindle a lifelong passion for any student. That’s why we need to ensure there is sufficient funding so that opportunities such as these remain open to all individuals.” The exhibition will welcome the public through Thursday, March 2 at Arcadia University Commons Art Gallery Area and Great Room Charlotte Perin of Harriton High School shows her oil painting and was awarded Best in Show Lobby, 450 S. Easton Road, Glenside, PA, during gallery hours, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., First Place Overall. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. To see all of the winning artwork and details of the show, visit the website of Council for the Advancement of Public Schools http://friendsofpubliced.org/about-us-2/touch-the-future-art-show/. MER/PSEA is comprised of the 42 local teacher associations that represent about 13,000 public school educators in Bucks and Montgomery counties. The Council for the Advancement of Public Schools was founded in 1995 to celebrate the success and value of public schools in Bucks and Montgomery counties.
