In celebration of Youth Art Month the Kennebec Valley Art Association proudly presents an exhibition of artwork by art students from area high schools, including Cony, Gardiner, Hall-Dale & Winthrop. The public is invited to join students and faculty at the opening reception on Friday, March 27th from 5 to 8 pm at the Harlow Gallery in downtown Hallowell. The opening will feature live music by high school musicians and refreshments will be served.
This third year of collaboration between area high schools and the Harlow Gallery is a community effort to unite & exhibit artists of differing ages and ability in a professional atmosphere. The students participate in planning and hanging the exhibition, which will consist of artwork created by students in the classrooms of the following art instructors: Christine Higgins of Cony High School, Jane Higgins of Hall-dale, Shalimar Poulin and Cheryl Herr-Rains of Gardiner High School and Mary Dyer of Winthrop High School. A variety of media will be exhibited and the focus of the artwork will be on drawing, painting, design, sculpture and photography, showcasing the outstanding talents of many emerging artists from our community. The exhibit will run through the weekend and end at 4pm on Sunday March 29th.
Higher Forms of Art has been made possible this year by a generous grant from the Maine Community Foundation.
