December 14, 2013
Shrewsbury – The Gallery at Shrewsbury Crossings will open the Shrewsbury High School Senior Show Saturday, Dec. 14, from 3 – 5 p.m. with an artists” reception. The exhibit will be open to the public daily 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, March 1.
At the opening reception, student artists will welcome guests and discuss their work and artistic methods. Classical pianist Katherine Evans will perform. The show will feature paintings, pottery, photography, and 3D works; some will be offered for sale, with all proceeds going to the artist.
Shrewsbury High School Visual Art Director Pamela LeBlanc coordinated the student submissions.
“Students have been working really hard this year and it is always exciting when they get to show their work to the greater community,” she said.
This exhibit is the second for Shrewsbury High School students at the gallery, according to Kelly Marcimo, director of community relations at Shrewsbury Crossings.
“We were so impressed with the level of work the students produced last year, our residents truly enjoyed the show,” she said. “We are more than pleased to make this an annual event. This year we wanted to give the graduating seniors the spotlight on their work. It's a special chance for them to have a gallery hanging experience.”
Visitors to the gallery are encouraged to bring a filled stocking to the opening to be included in the annual Stockings for Seniors collection. Holiday stockings will be distributed via the Shrewsbury Council on Aging's Meals on Wheels program.
