Perry Central High School:
Spring Exhibition for Art Students
Friday through March 26, 31 S Main

PERRY CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL ART STUDENTS will be the focus of a spring 2021 exhibition at the Arts Council for Wyoming County Main Gallery, 31 South Main St. The opportunity for these students is possible due to the cancellation of ACWC’s over-25-year old Annual All County High Schools exhibition because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For most of the students, this will be their first gallery show. 

“We’re thrilled to be able to give them the experience and exposure that comes with it! Not to mention honored to be able to feature artists at the beginning of their lifetime of work,” the ACWC said. The ACWC/Perry High School Art Show will open Friday and end March 26 with a closing awards reception at 6:30 p.m. in the ACWC’s Main Gallery. Those planning to attend should RSVP. The ACWC is limiting attendance due to COVID-19 restrictions. There will be no refreshments served and all social distancing protocols will be observed.


In addition to being the only Wyoming County high school to exhibit in the Arts Council’s gallery this year, two students from Perry High School were selected to receive the top two ACWC’s youth scholarships:
  • Lauren West was selected to receive ACWC & Creekside Fabrics Visual Arts Scholarship for young artists. This award gives her the opportunity to spend a year studying with a master artist. The apprenticeship will culminate with a solo exhibition at the ACWC in May 2022.
  • Emma McLaughlin will use her Balus Foundation Young Performance Scholarship to further her interest in musical theatre. This scholarship is made possible through the Balus Foundation and is awarded each year to one or two high school students from Wyoming County who wish to further their studies in the performing arts. In addition to other select performances. Emma will perform a solo recital at the ACWC this fall.
“The ACWC congratulates these two Perry Central High School youth artists for their hard work and this new accom-plishment,” the ACWC said.
