Public urged to vote on top two favorites

HOLLEY – Voting continues until Sunday to select the two favorite pizza peals decorated by Holley High School art students for Dustin’s Pizzeria, located at 50 Public Square in the village.

Last fall, Jennifer and Dustin Reisman, who own Dustin’s, asked art teachers Evinn Neadow and Brandi Zavitz, if their students would add artwork to the peals, which would then be mounted on the walls of the restaurant.

Pizza peals are wooden paddles which are typically used to remove pizza from the restaurant’s ovens.

Students in Neadow’s drawing and painting class showcased menu items on their peals. Zavitz’s students took photographs along the canal and around the falls and used them to paint landscapes on their peals.

One winner will be selected from among the landscape peals and one from the food peals. Winners will be announced on Feb. 7. The peals are on display in the dinning area of the restaurant.

This landscape painting features the view of the canal looking east from the village park.

One peal features a painting of a basket piled with Buffalo chicken wings.
