Winners Announced – Fox Valley Area High School Exhibit

Posted on Mar 6, 2020, by

The Fox Valley Area High School Glass Exhibition at Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass opened Friday, March 6th to showcase talented young area artists and celebrate national Youth Art Month.

The museum offered schools an opportunity to bring students to the museum to work in The Glass Studio with artists, Sara Rezin, Beth Wenger Johnstone, and Taylor Moeller-Roy.  Over the past several weeks, students from Appleton East, Berlin, Kimberly, Menasha, Neenah, New London, Oshkosh North, Renaissance School for the Arts, St. Mary Catholic, and Valley New School worked on their submissions. Many students created beads in the glass studio using flame working techniques, while others experimented with fused glass methods. The majority of the works exhibited were created during these workshops. Additional artwork created at the schools will also be on display during the exhibit which runs March 6 – April 5, 2020.
