LARCHMONT, N.Y. – The Larchmont Public Library will feature the second annual student art exhibit showcasing works by students enrolled in the drawing and painting program at Mamaroneck High School from Wednesday, April 8, through Wednesday, April 29, in the library’s Oresman Gallery during normal library hours.
The exhibit will feature artworks across a variety of styles and mediums by students from drawing and painting classes taught by Jason Cuvelier, Adam Rizzuti and Jill Shoffiett. Faculty members will also be exhibiting their works.
“We’re very glad to have this chance for our students – particularly our middle-level students – to exhibit their artwork in a very nice, serious venue in the community,” said Kevin Klein, chairman of the art department at Mamaroneck High School. “It’s exciting for the students to have the prospect of a real off-campus show in front of them. It spurs them to work extra hard to perfect their pieces and helps them to magically find the extra hours to do this.
“In addition, a show also gives the students some very real and persuasive compensation for their labor when people come to admire and praise it. It is a very authentic sort of assessment for their art. We’re grateful that the Larchmont Public Library can help us do this. We were so happy with the show last year, the responses to it and the way our students felt that we have expanded its scope this year to include more of our sophomores at Mamaroneck High School.”
