STUDENT ART SHOW
Local Students Display “My Neighborhood” Artwork
May 3 – 11, 2014 • Aronoff Center

CAAHow do the children of Greater Cincinnati see and interpret the world around them? The Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) explores this question through its annual Student Art Show, which exhibits artwork by local students. This year’s theme is “My Neighborhood.” The exhibition will be on display in the Aronoff Center’s Fifth Third Bank Theater (7th & Main Streets in downtown Cincinnati) from Saturday, May 3 – Sunday, May 11, 2014.

Representing students from grades K – 8, the diverse collection of two-dimensional artwork will include mediums from pencil drawings to printmaking to textiles. Now in its 12th year, the Student Art Show is organized and presented annually by CAA’s Department of Education and Community Relations, with the assistance of the Weston Art Gallery.

“CAA is excited to continue to present the Student Art Show annually. Every year students create a unique interpretation of the theme,” says Kathleen Riemenschneider, CAA’s Assistant Director of Education & Community Relations. “The program has been a wonderful opportunity for students to creatively express and share their views with their friends, family, and the public.”

The 2014 Student Art Show has 117 entries. Student artwork from the following schools will be on display: A D Owens (Newport, KY), Central Montessori Academy (Mt. Healthy, OH), Erpenbeck Elementary (Florence, KY), Mariemont Elementary (Mariemont, OH), Mary, Queen of Heaven (Erlanger, KY), Mercy Montessori Center (Walnut Hills, OH), Newport Primary (Newport, KY), Oakdale Elementary (Bridgetown, OH), Our Lady of the Visitation School (Delhi, OH), Springer School and Center (Hyde Park, OH), St. Ignatius School (Montfort Heights, OH), St. Joseph School—Crescent Springs (Crescent Springs, KY), Summit Country Day School (Hyde Park, OH), Terrace Park Elementary (Terrace Park, OH), and Winton Woods Middle School (Greenhills, OH).
