Works by area high school photographers on display at Kenan Center

The 29th annual Storrs All High Photo Show is now on display at the Kenan Center, 433 Locust St., Lockport. The exhibit features the work of students from 27 high school students from across Western and central New York. The show opened Sunday with a reception and presentation of awards.

The exhibit is named in honor of Lockport artist William Storrs, who passed away in 2005. An accomplished artist and longtime contributor to visual arts programming at the Kenan Center, Storrs was instrumental in starting the All High Photo Show, which was designed to showcase the photographic work of area high school students, and was an active participant in the installation of the works as well as the awards presentation.

This year’s winners were selected by Chris Gallant, an assistant professor of digital media and communications coordinator at Hilbert College.

Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through and from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The exhibit, which is sponsored by M&T Bank, Grigg Lewis Foundation, Kenan Arts Council and the Kenan Quilters’ Guild, will continue through April 27.
