Sutherland at The 1570
1570 Gallery at Valley Manor
1570 East Avenue
Mar 3, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In 1990, the Pittsford Sutherland High School Art Department established a unique partnership with The 1570 Gallery at Valley Manor. The 1570 Gallery provided Sutherland’s art students the opportunity to participate in their own juried exhibition. The exhibition was designed to provide students a real world experience in a professional gallery space. From start to finish, all aspects of mounting an exhibit were explored. Students had a chance to experience it all — from work selection to framing, pricing to publicity, and display to opening reception. The success of this first exhibition prompted a second one in 1991 and, subsequently, “Sutherland at the 1570” became a biennial event. The tradition continues this year. Sutherland’s 15th student art exhibit at Valley Manor opens on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, with an Opening Reception on Friday, March 3, 2017 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Artists from grades 9 through 12 will have pieces juried into this year’s show. Their artwork will represent a board range of styles, media, subject matter and techniques. The exhibit closes Friday, April 7, 2017.
