Gilboa-Conesville exhibit to feature storm-inspired art - Daily Star

Gilboa-Conesville exhibit to feature storm-inspired art - Daily Star

A collection of student artwork and poetry created in response to Hurricane Irene will be unveiled at 6:30 p.m. today at Gilboa-Conesville Central School.

"The Eyes of the Storm: Hurricane Irene in Images and Words" features 216 pages of writing and artwork created by 97 students in 5th through 12th grades at Gilboa-Conesville, as well as images of the flood contributed by adult photographers.

A celebration of the publication will take place in the school gymnasium at 132 Wyckoff Road. Complimentary copies of the book will be presented to contributors and will be available for purchase.

The program will be introduced by Superintendent Ruth Hutt Reeves, followed by comments by art teacher and curator of the project Susan Kliza, and Bertha Rogers, teaching artist and editor of the book. Selected students will then read from their poetry, after which refreshments will be served.

According to a media release, "The Eyes of the Storm" began as a visual response to the the devastation left by Hurricane Irene in the hamlets and villages near Gilboa, which directly affected many students and their families. The school's decision to discuss the natural tragedy ledto an art project led by Kliza; her students created two- and three-dimensional works of art about Irene, then wrote statements about the storm and resulting damage.

The MURAL Gallery in Stamford hosted the first public showing of the art, followed by exhibits at Catskill Elementary School, Schoharie Watershed Summit; and the Kaaterskill Fine Arts Gallery in Hunter.

Kliza then invited Rogers, a master teaching artist and poet living near Treadwell, to the school, through the DCMO BOCES Arts in Education Program, to conduct poetry workshops for Kliza's students as well as other classes at GCCS.

The A. Lindsay and Olive B. O'Connor Foundation and Rebuild Gilboa funded "The Eyes of the Storm: Hurricane Irene in Images and Words."

For more information, email or, or call the school at 588-7541.


Teenager honored for artwork rejected by Chicago - 13 WREX-TV

CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago teenager whose design for the city's vehicle registration sticker was rejected over concerns it might depict gang signs now is getting some national recognition.

U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez has chosen 15-year-old Herbert Pulgar's artwork for the annual Congressional Art Contest. The boy's artwork includes Chicago's skyline inside a heart, with hands pointing toward a police hat, firefighter helmet and paramedic symbol.

Chicago chose his design for the city sticker then withdrew the honor after people raised concerns that it might include gang signs.

The teenager and his mother will travel to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday as the congressman's guest. His poster will hang in the Capitol complex near the visitors' center.

The annual art contest is sponsored by the nonprofit Congressional Institute. It's open to high school students.
