HS Art Salon to Showcase Student Work

Briarcliff High School’s Department of Visual Arts is pleased to announce the opening of its Art Salon 2016, a stunning exhibition of painting, drawing, ceramics, photography and film by our talented students.

Once again, through the generosity of the Sleepy Hollow Country Club, the exhibition will be held at their historic location at 777Albany Post Road in Briarcliff Manor.

The work of these students highlights the success of the Briarcliff art program,
which emphasizes classical technique within a contemporary framework. On view will be paintings and drawings encompassing still life, portraiture and landscape, including the works of regional Silver Key award winners and senior portfolios.

Teachers John Brooks and Jessica Dubin instruct traditional dark room techniques and a selection of photographs will be on view. This year, students will also exhibit computer artwork made under the guidance of digital instructor John Brooks. The students of Jean Linville are presenting an array of imaginative ceramics, both sculptural and functional. Film shorts, created by Briarcliff future filmmakers, under the guidance of Jamie Mandel, will round off the evening.

The guest speaker at the Art Salon 2016 this year is Reuben Sinha. Sinha is a painter, currently working in encaustics. After receiving a BFA from NYU, Sinha studied at the Art Students League of New York and Columbia University. His awards include the MacDowell Traveling Scholarship and Fulbright Fellowship, both travel grants were used to return to his native India to study and paint. Sinha currently lives and works in New York City. He was the founder and executive director of artHARLEM, a non-for-profit community arts organization, that produced The Harlem Open Artist Studio Tour, an intimate look at contemporary art and artists’ studio’s in historic Harlem.

BHS Art Salon 2015

Briarcliff High School is pleased to announce the opening of “ART SALON 2015 – Invitation to a Voyage”, an exhibition of painting, drawing, ceramics, photography and short films created by our talented students.

The event will take place on Thursday, April 9th,  2015, from 6-8pm at the historic Sleepy Hollow Country Club, located at 777Albany Post Road in Briarcliff Manor, NY.

A number of students focused their attention this year on exotic and far off places while others found inspiration in the fascinating complexities of painting’s technical processes: still life paintings developed with indirect method using glazes and scumbles, alla prima method, as well as abstract expressionism. Included in the show are ‘Scholastic Art’ Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention award winning paintings.

In the studio, drawing students modeled for each other to create figure studies. Students also explored the graphic potential of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Celtic imagery.

Photo students received their training with b & w film in the darkroom producing a range of b & w images, stunning in their richness and clarity. Briarcliff continues it’s well anticipated annual screening of original film shorts produced and directed by the talented young film makers of Briarcliff. Ceramics round off this student offering providing a colorful and playful addition to this ambition exhibition.

Music accompaniments will be provided by our illustrious music students.  Our guest speaker will be Vincent Desiderio, an internationally known artist from Marlborough Gallery, NYC. The Visual Arts Department invites all to join us on April 9th for an evening of entertainment and refreshments as we celebrate the achievements and commitment of the young artists at Briarcliff High School.

Thank you to the Briarcliff Friends of the Arts for their support.
