The Self: Three Ways
transFORM Gallery is happy to announce our 4th annual exhibition of artwork by students in New Rochelle High School’s Performing and Visual Arts Education Program, PAVE. The exhibit will be on display from May 1 – 22, 2014. A Closing Reception will be held at transFORM Gallery on Thursday, May 22 from 6 – 9 pm with drinks and refreshments for family and friends of New Rochelle High School and gallery attendees. The students will each be exhibiting three pieces of art. The PAVE class created portrait drawings in charcoal, from observation, depicting only their head and shoulders in a 3/4 turn viewpoint. The second piece consists of mixed media surrealist works inspired by the 20th century avant garde movement that sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind. Their third work is made from ceramic and melted glass and inspired by their dreams. The dream pieces capture thoughts, images and sensations occurring in their minds during sleep. Come and catch a glimpse of these pieces from New Rochelle’s most talented young artists.
