Artist-in-Residence
General Information

Partnering with the Ohio Arts Council, we strive to bring outstanding artists to our community each year as Artists-In- Residence. This year Clay High School art students and their teachers, Mrs. Tiffany Moore, worked with photographer, Gary Harwood, to tell the story of life in Scioto County. Mr. Harwood has been a photographer for Kent State University for more than 22 years and chief photographer since 1987. He began the Portsmouth residency on September 19 and completed his work with the students on December 6.

A Celebration Reception took place at Clay High School on the evening of December 6, with parents, students and sponsors in attendance. Students shared their photographs and journals with those in attendance and Mr. Harwood was available to talk to the audience about the editing process which is still ongoing. Mr. Harwood will be passing the project on to local freelance graphic designer, Kelly Babcock, who will work with the students to publish a book made up of the students’ photos and narrative. Each student will receive a book and copies will be presented to the SOMC Cancer Center for patients to view while they are receiving infusion therapy.

Congratulations to Clay High School art students and their teacher, Mrs. Moore, for the successful work they have completed so far! We are looking forward to the next “phase” of the project. Special thanks to our sponsors, the Ohio Arts Council, Scioto Foundation, Southern Ohio Medical Center and the Portsmouth Rotary Club as well as to Kelly Babcock for sharing her time and her talents with the students.
