Something to Celebrate: Windham County’s Students in the Arts
March is Student Art Month in Windham County and the Arts Council of Windham County is again organizing shows and events that will spotlight the great art coming from our young people. In its 33rd Year, the month also recognizes the teachers and school infrastructures that help young artists to blossom.
Festivities will begin with openings of the High School visual art shows on Gallery Walk, Friday March 1. Two-dimensional art will be displayed at Equilibrium 17 Elm Street, Brattleboro, and three-dimensional works at Vermont Artisan Designs Gallery 2, 106 Main Street, Brattleboro. An awards ceremony will take place at 7:30 at Vermont Artisans honoring outstanding work in 8 categories. The public will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite pieces. Both shows will be available for viewing through March 28.
Elementary School art will be on view at the Brooks Memorial Library and at many other locations around Windham County
Innumerable music, drama, and dance performances will take place at venues around the county. A listing will appear weekly in the Thursday Brattleboro Reformer and will be posted on the Arts Council of Windham County web site: www.ACWC.us. Among the many performances, the Windham Orchestra is partnering with Student Art Month to present a program featuring compositions by local elementary and middle school students and a high school soloist in a concerto with full orchestra Sunday, March 24 at 3:00 at the Latchis Theater.
Student Art Month is organized and presented by The Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC), an all-volunteer organization that has worked to strengthen the environment for artists and arts organizations in the area for 36 years.
Student Art Month is sponsored in part by Brattleboro Savings & Loan, Brattleboro Reformer, C&S Wholesale print shop, and Vermont Artisans Design and Gallery 2.
