As part of the Peters Valley School of Craft’s annual High School Student Exhibition, two Delaware Valley High School students won recognition for their unique sculpture and jewelry work.

The 14th Annual Student Exhibition, which is still on display through February 25, features works from students at Blair Academy, Bloomfield High School, Delaware Valley High School, Fort Lee High School, High Point Regional High School, Kittatinny Regional High School, Randolph High School, Roxbury High School, Sparta High School, Wallkill Valley Regional High School, and Watchung Hills Regional High School.

Several students from those participating schools won awards, including two students from Delaware Valley High School. This year, the showrunners also invited the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG), and Craft into Art to choose award winners. SNAG selected Maddie Oyer, grade 12, from Delaware Valley High School for their piece “Blue Spring” to award a one-year student membership to Peters Valley. And Craft into Art is providing a scholarship to Hailey Hemsworth, grade 11, from Delaware Valley High School for their ceramic piece “Straws Berries.”

The show includes student artwork from a variety of mediums, including ceramics, drawing, painting, jewelry, sculpture, photography, textiles, and other mixed media. While some bad weather caused the opening reception to be delayed, the closing reception is stilled scheduled for February 25, at 3 p.m.

The Sally D. Francisco Gallery is located on the second floor of the Gallery, Peters Valley School of Craft, 19 Kuhn Rd., Layton, NJ. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
