Mentor Show and School Invitational Opens

Student works on exhibit at GAC March 21–29

The opening reception for Garrison Art Center’s Mentor Show and School Invitational Theme Exhibition takes place Saturday, March 21, from 3 to 5 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at this opportunity to view the work of 18 mentees and student work from 13 area schools.

The Mentor Program was established 27 years ago. The program was developed as a means to identify, encourage and guide high-school-age students in the production and presentation of their own projects. Each year’s program culminates in an exhibition of student works in the galleries at Garrison Art Center.

Garrison Art Center’s School Invitational Theme Exhibition (SITE) is a school-based educational program that invites local public school art teachers to engage their students in a theme-based project to be exhibited at the Art Center. This program is designed to uphold educational directives that seek to enhance cross-curriculum learning.

This year’s theme is Rollin’ on the River, using printmaking as the medium. Students were encouraged to explore the many aspects of the Hudson River through the lens of biology, history or engineering as it translates into a creative vision using a variety of printmaking techniques.

Both exhibitions will remain open until March 29. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Garrison Art Center is at 23 Garrison’s Landing.
