Beginning March 2nd, Front Street Art Gallery, located in Scituate Harbor, will exhibit art from the Scituate High School arts program. This art has been selected by the students taking art classes and has exceeded the expectations of their teachers. Both 2-D and 3-D works will be on display; selected pieces have been chosen from various different-level classes at SHS. The student art will remain displayed for everyone to visit and appreciate until March 26th. 

Hosted by the Scituate Arts Association, a reception will be held on Sunday, March 5th, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The artists will be in attendance to showcase their work and express the inspiration behind their art. All are welcome and encouraged to attend the show and vote for their favorite piece! 

SHS art teachers appreciate the opportunity Front Street Art Gallery is providing for their students, as this public event provides an opportunity for students to gain exposure in a professional gallery setting. SHS art teachers Sheryl Pace, Julie Hickey, and Jessica Maguire have guided their students through the process of preparing for the show.

Pace expressed her honor and appreciation for the “invitation to show their pieces in the public gallery.” She described the pieces as “a culmination of the most moving work, selected as exemplars of what the visual arts department represents.” Pace said the selected pieces are “edgy and vastly different from what is commonly produced.” 

AP art student senior Sorina Condon is currently taking 2D Art, and many of her pieces were chosen for the art show. Condon said she is “most excited about [her] vase” because it was her “first time ever doing clay, and [she’s] really happy it got picked.” She has taken various art classes throughout high school and hopes to continue her career in visual arts in college. Condon plans to major in fashion business at a university in Paris. She is “very excited” to attend the show along with many of her beloved classmates who have worked extremely hard to accomplish such an impressive achievement. 

 The Front Street Art Gallery is open from 12 noon to 5:00 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. SHS artists would love to see your support!
