Euharlee, GA – The Euharlee Welcome Center and History Museum welcomes its first temporary exhibit in collaboration with the Woodland Middle School at Euharlee Art Program. The show opens November 5 and will feature work from all three grade levels as well as the school’s Art Club.
“Our students have been hard at work and are excited to unveil their new projects. They have been preparing for the upcoming show for over a year. Work began on our Mona Lisa canvas project in the fall of 2014,” commented WMSE Art Teacher Abby Hennington.
The art students will debut new art projects months in the making at this art show.
“My 7th graders and Art Club members are particularly excited. My 7th graders worked on watercolor paintings showing linear perspective. We studied historical buildings located in Euharlee, and used them as our subject. Art Club members have been working on our Mona Lisa project for quite a while, incorporating math skills as well as art skills. They are excited to unveil her at the show opening on November 5th, and are very proud of the huge amount of work that they put into this canvas project,” Hennington continued.
The public is welcome at the opening reception November 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Euharlee Welcome Center and History Museum.
“Our local students are so talented, and we thought it was a natural partnership between the welcome center and museum and the middle school,” explained Katie Gobbi, Euharlee Welcome Center and History Museum Director. “This is another opportunity for their art to be displayed in public to share with the community.”
The WMSE Art Program is always looking for gently used materials and art supplies. A supply wish list is available at Donations will be collected at the reception and during the duration of the exhibit. The temporary exhibit will open on November 5 and run through February.
