Art enthusiasts of all ages, mark your calendars for this year’s much anticipated and celebrated Sherman School Art Show that is sure to offer another sensory overload experience. Over 1,000 pieces of amazing two-dimensional and three-dimensional creativity will be on display by each and every student artist in the Pre-K through the Eighth grade.
Day 1 of the art show will take place on Wednesday, May 13th, in the Sherman School’s multipurpose room, and the exhibit hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Art Show Reception and the Sherman Education Association’s (SEA) sponsored Ice Cream Social will follow. The hours will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Under the direction of the Sherman School’s music teacher, Steven Trinchillo, there will also be live musical performances by some of the talented student musicians. Admission to this art show, reception, and the ice cream social are free and open to all.
Just in case you can’t make it on the first day, or would like to view the art show again, then Day 2 exhibit hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 14th.
Alisyn Hamilton, the Sherman School’s dedicated and passionate art teacher and art show curator for over twenty-three years, is thrilled about so many of the projects on display. Mrs. Hamilton shared “among the nearly forty projects included this year, visitors will find ceramic sculptures, prints, paintings, drawings and collages interpreting a wide variety of themes. This year, we have expanded the ceramics program, adding several new projects.” Mrs. Hamilton expressed that our Annual Art Show represents an ongoing celebration of student creativity and this community’s commitment to supporting the Arts.
As for the volunteers that collectively contribute countless hours, Mrs. Hamilton is appreciative of the over 30 parents that began in January to prepare the artwork for display and for those who will also set-up and take down the show. The Sherman School’s devoted Art Paraprofessional, Jody Clark, and Art Assistant, Gina Romano, also deserve honorable mention for their continued support.
