HHS Student Artwork Featured in Arts Alive Exhibit at PSNK


About 70 Highlands High School students have artwork on display at the annual Alle-Kiski Art Consortium's "Arts Alive" Exhibit at Penn State New Kensington's Art Gallery from March 3-29, 2019.


In addition to Highlands, the exhibit features student artwork from Deer Lakes, Kiski, St. Joseph and Valley high schools. The purpose of the annual art show is to feature young artists as well as showcase the talents as a united, artistic Alle-Kiski Valley region. Highlands students are led and inspired by HHS art teachers Mrs. Teresa Emeloff and Mrs. Renae Yoder.


An Artist Reception and meet-and-greet was held on Monday, March 4.


The exhibit is open weekdays from 8am-8pm and weekends from noon-5:00pm through March 29.
