The following was submitted by art teacher Lisa Robb:

On Thursday, May 23, the Spring Street Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of Block Island High School students’ artwork. This show will be a survey of works produced by art students in grades eight through 12 and will include drawings, paintings, collages, and ceramics all created in a variety of artistic styles. 

These students have learned about artistic movements such as Fauvism and Surrealism, as well as drawing techniques including grid drawings, upside-down drawings, gesture drawings and studies in foreshortening. Their works display a strong understanding of how to manipulate a variety of materials including colored pencils and pastels.

The ceramics students have worked diligently and innovatively to produce a smorgasbord of pottery and sculpture. Working in hand-building and on wheel, the students have created functional forms that include plates, bowls, mugs, and vases as well as more sculptural forms such as masks, birdhouses, and characters from The Simpsons.

Come and view these fine works and congratulate the students on a job well done on Thursday, May 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Spring Street Gallery. Works will be displayed until the following week for anyone unable to attend the opening.
