Photography Reception: Exhibit from the Adelante Arts Camp Students -Tuscarawas COunty

Tuscarawas Arts Partnership (TAP) and the Tuscarawas County Public Library System
welcome the community to the Reception for the Photography Exhibit for the Adelante Arts
Camp on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at the Tuscarawas County Public
Library System – Main Library. Throughout the summer, local Latino students in Tuscarawas
County attended the Adelante Arts Camp to learn and hone in on their creative abilities in
photography and creative writing to capture photographs to be on display for the exhibit and
create a book of their combined works.
Through the lens of the Adelante Arts Camp students, come see a showcase of the
photographed works from the summer. The exhibit will feature photographs from: Araceli Ajanel
Herrera, Santiaga Hernández Hernández, Seperina Hernández Hernández, Yohayra Mejía
Agustín, Brayden Mendoza – Ramírez, Yonny Mendoza – Ramírez, Sara Petrona Cedillo de
León, Daisy Raymundo, Noelia Sica, and Juan Ajanel Velásquez.
Sherrel Reiger, one of the instructors and translator for the camp, reflected on the past
summer, “We had so much fun with the students this summer! They have taken some amazing
pictures that capture the richness of their Guatemalan heritage and their integration into the
larger community. With Miss Madi’s help, the students grew more confident and developed a
better sense of what makes an excellent photograph. We invite everyone to see these images
and to meet these budding photographers.”
Photography instructor Madi Weaver also added, “This project was an amazing
experience that I’m so honored to be a part of and will never forget. The students are such a
great group of kids, they really impressed me with how truly talented they are! I’m so excited for
people to see their work as well as learn about their beautiful culture. I’m so proud of them!”
The book titled “Through Our Lens: A Glimpse at Our Latino Culture” – which displays a
variety of photographed and written works by the students – will be available for pre-sale.
Proceeds from the pre-sale will go to next summer’s Adelante Arts Camp. Contact TAP to order
a copy of the book until Friday, October 28, 2022.
