Treher will begin an artist residency at Mercersburg’s James Buchanan High School in the Tuscarora School District. While there he will work closely with art instructor Anita Shively. The art program at James Buchanan previously hosted several artists-in-residence; original funding was provided through a grant from the Pennsylvania Counsel On The Arts.
Treher, who studied sculpture at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and at the Academy of Fine Art Zagreb (Croatia), will be working at James Buchanan High School throughout this year.
Treher has worked in a variety of media, from assemblages of found objects to wood turning to cast objects. He considers mold-making, an artists’ discipline he studied in Croatia, to be a primary area of expertise. While at James Buchanan, he will be creating works of public sculpture in collaboration with student artists.
“I am super super excited (to be starting the residency)…” said Treher in a posting on his Facebook page.
