St Mary School to Host Diocesan Art Showby WNY Catholic
SWORMVILLE — The work of young artists from Catholic schools across the diocese will be on display at St. Mary School during the annual Diocesan Art Show from May 5 though May 8 from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Artwork from more than thirty local Catholic elementary and high schools will be exhibited throughout the school, located at 6919 Transit Road in East Amherst.
According to Karen Genovese, St.Mary's art teacher and exhibit coordinator, the art show is an opportunity to showcase outstanding talent and highlight the importance of art as partof the school curriculum.
"We are so blessed at St. Mary's to have a comprehensive art program at a time when many public schools are cutting back,"Genovese said. "Art truly enhances the student experience and leads to greater academic success. Igniting a student's creativity is critical to all areas of learning."
The public is invited to attend an opening reception on Monday, May 5, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. For more information visit www.stmaryschoolswormville.org or call 716-689-8424.
