A group of senior art students will be showing their work at the Artist Hand Gallery on Philadelphia Street during the month of March. This event coincides with the annual “March is Youth Art Month”. This is a month of promoting art and art education in the United States with thousands of American schools participating, often with involvement of local art museums, galleries and civic organizations.
The opening reception for the “Last Brushstrokes at IHS” 2015 Senior Show is March 6th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Family, friends, neighbors, teachers and staff are invited to attend. Students who will have work on display are Carlee Benhart, Alexis Bonilla, Katherine Bradshaw, Eugina Chun, Kelsey Cunningham, Monica DeLoreto, Jared Fleming, Aleah Groman, Jessie Jennings, Rachel Mossgrove, Eliza O’Neal, Anna Paccapaniccia, Hannah Schwartz, Baylee Sergent, and Dereck Yoder. Music will be provided by “William Forrest”, an Indie rock band consisting of IHS alumni.
The students have been preparing for this show since September and are excited to finally be able to present their work in a professional atmosphere. Sandy Trimble, director of the gallery, spoke to the members of Portfolio club on how to make reproductions of their work for retail. Many of the works on display will also be for sale.
