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.

    MORENCI pep rallies generally end with a tug of war. The senior class entry, shown above, did not advance to the finals. Griffin Grieder, Alaina Webster, Kyle Long and Jazmin Smith are shown at the front of the rope, giving it their best effort.
  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
