We are very excited to welcome this ongoing partnership with the Clarke County School District that celebrates the creative youth in our community and the importance of art education . Fol......lowing these pandemic years , we worked to develop a theme for the exhibit reflective of our shared experience and the hopeful possibilities of rebuilding together .
“Artists often start with concepts to ignite their imaginations as they plan , prepare , and create artwork . Teachers and students were al challenged with a return to “normal” in the fall 2021 . From this return emerged a concept , which serves as the basis of this exhibition . What comes to mind when you think of the prefix “RE - “? Perhaps recollection , recycle , rethink , redo , reimagine , restart , reset , remember – the list goes on and on… Many of these words may seem to point back to the past , but they also point us to the future and in new directions” – Dan Smith , CCSD
The exhibit will include works by students from Kindergarten to 12th grade and will include all mediums from weaving , sculpture , photography to painting , drawing and collage . Also included are a number of large collaborative artworks by classrooms and grades .
