Student Art on Display at Century House

Displaying some of the portraits of J.R. Green, Superintendent of Fairfield County Schools, that are on display at the Century House in Ridgeway, are Phyllis Nichols Gutierrez, chairwoman of Arts on the Ridge Committee; Theresa Brown, Fairfield Central arts teacher; Julianne Neal, Coordinator of Visual and Performing Arts and Charlene Herring, Mayor of Ridgeway.

RIDGEWAY — The first exhibit of a new revolving art exhibit to be housed at the Century House in Ridgeway will be a series of portraits created by students in the advanced art class at Fairfield Central High School. The portraits are of Fairfield County School District Superintendent J. R. Green, complete with his signature bow tie. Each portrait gives a slightly different take on the District’s top administrator. The exhibits are part of the long-standing partnership between the Visual and Performing Arts Department of the SDFC, the Fairfield County Arts Council (FCAC) and the Ridgeway Arts on the Ridge Committee.

The current series of portraits of the Superintendent will be on display through mid-July at the Century House, with selected appearances at community events to be followed by a period of display at the SDFC district office. Future exhibits will include student artwork from ARTWORKS, the District’s artistically gifted and talented programs, as well as work from each of the district schools.

“We were thrilled this year to be invited to bring student work to Arts on the Ridge for their exhibits,” said Julianne Neal, coordinator of the Visual and Performing Arts program. “This series of revolving displays will be a continuation of that project and we are so excited to be a part of it. We invite the community to stop in and see this wonderful artwork created by our very talented students. I think people will be surprised at the talent.”

The students’ artwork is also available for display in Fairfield County businesses. For more information, contact Julianne Neal at 635-1441, ext. 60223 or Phyllis Gutierrez at 272-6471.
