We are pleased to announce that the 2012 Colchester School District Art Show will begin Tuesday, May 1 and run through Friday, May 4 in the Colchester High School gymnasium from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
And on the evening of Thursday, May 3, the show will remain open until 8:00 p.m. for the Artist Reception event from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The reception is for students, family members, and the community, and it provides an opportunity for the artists to discuss their work. Refreshments will be served, and there will also be some special performances. Please join us!
The CSD Art Show features works of art from every grade level in the district. Throughout the show, attendants may vote for their favorite piece of artwork from each school; winners of the People’s Choice awards receive art supplies and may showcase their work in the main display case in the CHS lobby. More than 500 works of art are expected to be showcased by Colchester High School students alone, covering Art 1 and 2-D Art, Photography (film and digital), Pottery 1 and 2, and 3-D Art. In addition, all CHS art students will write an artist statement reflecting upon their work and the creative process, which not only hones their writing skills but also helps the viewers to understand the specialized artistic techniques the students learned through the art program.
For more information about the art show, please e-mail Anne Cummings or call (802) 264-5700. Please join us for this free community event showcasing the work of our talented artists!
