LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — The Catskill Art Society (CAS), in partnership with Sullivan County BOCES, will present the annual “CAS Sullivan County High School Art Show,” an exhibition of work by Sullivan County high school students. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 12 at the CAS Arts Center at 48 Main St., from 1 to 4 p.m. The show runs until May 4.

This exhibition will present the work of high school students from all eight of the county’s districts (Eldred, Fallsburg, Liberty, Livingston Manor, Monticello, Roscoe, Sullivan West and Tri-Valley) plus student work from BOCES. This annual exhibition celebrates the creativity of the region’s youth and showcases the diversity of expression across Sullivan County.

The show presents 300 artworks in 10 media categories: black and white drawing, color drawing, black and white photography, color photography, painting, ceramics and glass, digital art, design, mixed media/printmaking, and sculpture. CAS puts together an outside jury panel of artists and experts that award a first and second place ribbon in each category. Blue ribbon winners receive complimentary enrollment in a CAS art class series and red ribbon winners receive a $50 scholarship for any class in 2014 at the CAS Arts Center. Students will also be invited to the Arts Center to select a student prize award in each category.

Light refreshments will be provided by BOCES. Visit www.catskillartsociety.org.
