Alumni art show coming 8.19.09

Written by David Green.

A Morenci Alumni Art Show is planned at the Liz Stella annex at Stair Public Library in conjunction with the Alumni Reunion Sept. 25-27.

Morenci alumni are invited to include a piece of original artwork in the show. The piece should be matted, framed and ready to hang. Three-dimensional pieces are also fine, but should be ready to display. The pieces should be taken to Stair Public Library by Saturday, Sept. 19, for inclusion in the show.

Organizers would also like artists to write a brief biography including their name, MHS graduation year, current hometown, title of the piece and the medium, and artistic activities from the past, present and future. The information will be displayed with their artwork.

The alumni exhibit will remain on display through October. If it is not possible for an artist to leave the artwork through October, please let organizers know.

An informal meet-the-artists open house is scheduled from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the library. Friends and family of the artists and community members are welcome to attend.

Kym (Lamley) Ries, Morenci High School art teacher, is also hoping alumni art teachers will contribute pieces to be exhibited in the show.

Artwork may be dropped off at Stair Public Library during regular hours—Monday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Tuesday, thursday and Friday, 1 to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For more information or to register, contact Kym Ries at kries@morenci.k12.mi.us or Colleen Leddy at stair@monroe.lib.mi.us.
