Student Work on Display at Pawtucket Arts Collaborative
On April 14, 2015
Several Saint Raphael Academy art students were recognized for their work in the Fourth Annual Pawtucket City Wide High School Exhibit, now showing at the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative Gallery. Art instructor Barbara Larned entered eight students’ work in the juried show, and while she has submitted to the student show before, this is the first year that SRA has had such a strong presence.
“This was one of the best years of the show. The quality of the work was fabulous,” said Mrs. Larned.
Artwork was submitted from Mrs. Larned’s Introduction to Fine Arts class (a freshman class), Art Studio (a new class for sophomores), and a senior Drawing & Painting class. An additional piece, a group work from the first semester Sculpture class, was also submitted for exhibition.
Most of the students attended the opening night reception on April 2, with a number of friends and family present to support them. Mrs. Larned noted that the students also enjoyed seeing the variety of art displayed and talking with students from other schools.
Freshman Maddison Cocca was awarded First Place in Digital Art for a photo inspired by Edvard Munch’s painting, “The Scream.” The photo was chosen for its clear, sharp image and clever composition. Other students’ work on display are Isaiah Barrientos, Alyssa Holmes, Jackie Lainez, Emily Craig, Hayley Dunne, Gabrielle DaCunha and Klara Szilagyi.
Students’ artwork can be viewed at the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative Mill Gallery, 560 Mineral Spring Ave., Pawtucket. The gallery is open Thursday-Friday 4-6 pm; Saturday-Sunday 1-5 pm, and the exhibit closes May 1.
