Young Adult Art Gallery at Newton Free Library: A Snapshot of Newton South Arts
Newton South High School's first show, A Snapshot of Newton South Arts, will be on display in the Newton Free Library’s Young Adult Art Gallery located on the second floor though Fall 2011
Once created, student work is collected in college-bound portfolios, displayed around the school, at the Newton Education Center, and entered into the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards. This year Newton South art students received more Gold and Silver Key awards at the awards than any public or private school in Newton and the surrounding area.
While much of Newton South's award winning work is displayed in other locations, the Young Adult Gallery exhibition is an accurate reflection of the quality and breadth of work produced by South students. The pieces were selected from students' work in the following classes:
- Ceramics Teachers: Cindy Goldberg, Karen Sobin-Jonash
- Digital Art Teacher: Carol Ober
- Painting and Drawing Teacher: Megan Leary-Crist
- Photography Teacher: Robert Bouchal
The library wishes to extend its gratitude to Eric Blomster of abraxis framing co. in Newton, who generously donated his time, and provided the frames and mats cost free, and to members of the Newton Camera Club who hung the show.
