For the 32nd year, the Kenan Center in Lockport will present the Storrs All High Photo Show, featuring the work of high school students from across Western New York. This year's show opens Sunday, April 2, with a free public reception from 2-5 p.m. at the Kenan Center House Gallery, 433 Locust St.

In addition, one student form each school will be recognized with a merit award.

The exhibit continues through Sunday, April 23. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. weekdays and 2-5 p.m. weekends. The exhibit is named in honor of Lockport artist William Storrs, who passed away in 2005. An accomplished artist and long-time contributor to visual arts programming at the Kenan Center, Storrs was instrumental in starting the All High Photo Show. It was designed to showcase the photographic work of high school students throughout Western New York. He was an active participant in the installation of the works, as well as the awards presentation.
