Shrewsbury – Shrewsbury Crossings will be featuring the works of Shrewsbury High School (SHS) student artists at its first Spring Art Exhibit now through Sunday, April 28. Many of the exhibiting artists were recently recognized by the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards.

Shrewsbury Crossings offers assisted living and the Harbor Program of care for those with Alzheimer's disease and other memory impairments. The community is operated by Benchmark Senior Living, based in Wellesley.

Kelly Marcimo is the director of community relations at Shrewsbury Crossings.

“Introducing a new artist gallery space for the residents of our community and the local community is something we are really excited to be able to do,” she said. “To have the talented artists of Shrewsbury High School as our first featured artist group is very special. We are glad to support the development of young artists with a professional gallery setting. For some of the students, it will be the first time they see their artwork hanging on the wall with their artist information placed next to it.

“We know our residents will enjoy the visual display on a daily basis and hope the SHS community and the general public will have the opportunity to stop by to see the exhibit as well. We look forward to welcoming everyone to see Shrewsbury Crossings and the wonderful works of art produced by Shrewsbury High School's amazing artists,” she added.

Future exhibits are planned with the Shrewsbury Artist Guild, she said. Other interested artists are encouraged to contact Marcimo, at 508 845-2100, for consideration.

The gallery exhibit will be open for viewing daily 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. through April 28. The exhibit, which is free, is open to the public.

Shrewsbury Crossings is located at 311 Main St.
