Opening Reception

Free and open to the public

Pelham Art Center is proud to continue its annual exhibition of exceptional student art in 2015 with the High School Art Salon on view for one week, April 14-21, 2015. The public is invited to an opening reception on Tuesday, April 14, 6:30-8:00pm. The exhibition will feature artwork by students in advanced art classes from four local high schools: Bronxville, Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, and Pelham Memorial. Advanced art classes, including Advanced Placement courses, are designed for upper level high school students who are interested in pursuing art with added intensity. Many are preparing art portfolios as part of their applications to college. The opening reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

 

Comprising more than sixty works in a range of media, this exhibition captures the youthful energy and vision of a new generation of artists. For many of these talented students, this will be their first exhibition. Pelham Art Center is delighted to offer a learning and career-building opportunity for them, and to bring public attention to these young, emerging artists. Come meet the artists and talk to their teachers during this special, inter-school event.
