Each year, the artwork of selected Cortland County students is chosen for display in the “Imagination Celebration” art show at Homer Center for the Arts. The yearly event is community-wide art exhibit, with two shows divided by grade level, on display throughout the month of April. Artwork submitted for students in grades 7-12 is judged by outside artists.
This year, two McEvoy students received special recognition by the juried artists: Sophomore Brett Zuke (pictured left) for his mixed media collage entitled “Progression” and Freshman Cameron Whipple for “Bent Spoon Flavor,” a collaged spoon from a video game. A total of 20 students from the OCM BOCES McEvoy Campus and the Homer Star program participated in the event, each receiving a participation award for their accomplishments.
McEvoy art teacher Sarah Carman is proud of her students’ work. She said, “All my students’ work has been exceptional this year. I am so proud of my students’ efforts, courage, and determination to complete their projects.”
Being selected for recognition has had a positive effect on the students. Brett Zuke commented “It was great and pretty inspiring seeing the other artwork, makes me want to do even better!”
