Teaching Artist/Student Exhibit Opening
Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) and the Peekskill City School District is pleased to invite you to the opening of High School students’ artwork in the upcoming exhibition Between I and Thou on February 4th from 4-5 p.m. at HVCCA.
Artist Kristianne Molina collaborated with over 100 Peekskill High School students during a 10 day intensive with HVCCA’s Teaching Artist Residency. Students explored painting and dyeing techniques primarily with cochineal combined with minerals such as iron, oxalic acid, tin, and aluminum. The student collaborative celebrates the individual and collective diversity, culminating into a large installation unveiled on February 4th in conjunction with HVCCA’s exhibition Between I and Thou.
The exhibition Between I and Thou includes artists from many different areas of the globe and explores the human need to tell the story of self and society, offering a rich conversation about the sameness and different-ness among us.
