Canisteo-Greenwood Student Artists Display Work at St. James Mercy Hospital

Several Canisteo-Greenwood students recently loaned their artwork to St. James Mercy Hospital (SJMH) in Hornell for display in the lobby, cafeteria, and emergency room hallway.
This exhibit showcases artwork from members of the Canisteo Greenwood Central School (CGCS) Art Club. Art Club members include: Troy Colvin-Nix, Leah Evans, Randi Fay (Treasurer), Amanda Gardner (President), Lindsey Garrigues (Treasurer), Sadie Heckel (Vice President), Kennedy Henshaw, Meghan Johnson, Arielle Kallier, Reanna Lemen, Elizabeth Loop, Leighann Mattison, Lissy Nisbet, Olivia Reska (Secretary), and Lillian Thompson. "We are delighted to display the works of so many creative students," said Jen Sullivan, president and CEO. "This is the first student art exhibit at SJMH, and we are pleased to offer the opportunity for local, budding artists to display their talents. Not only are we hopeful this exhibit will encourage local talent, but it also gives us the opportunity to enhance our facility."
