Hashtag #ARTSY, is part of a community initiative by Yak Arts to create creative opportunities for local artists of all ages. This year we reached out to students of the Light House Charter School's Junior Honors Art Society. The concept behind this art show is to give young people within the community the opportunity to show the art that they are proud of, without limiting them to medium or scale. It provides a chance for them to show work in a working retail gallery, and find their feet, hopefully reinforcing artistic confidence in an environment that is truly distinct. Their work will hang to be sold alongside that of some of the masters, whose work we have acquired on the secondary market.
OPENING NIGHT DECEMBER 19 4PM - 6PM
This year our show featured work by local youth artists;
Summer Bates, Mackenzie Colton, Tess Taloumis, Sophie Friend, Kai Antos, Michael Mitrokostas, Freya Rich, Lilly Manganaro, Maris Poepsel, and Isabelle Nobili.
This year all the students who participated were members of the National Junior Honors Art Society at the Lighthouse Charter School. Of the work that was hung for this show, only one piece was produced during school time. The rest was made at home.
ART TEACHER WITH GALLERY CURATOR
Yak Arts would like to thank the Light House Charter School for encourageing student participation with a special commendation for Art Teacher Debby Greenwood who helped to facilitate the show's development in it's very first year. The opening was a wonderful success. Thank you to all the parents who were able to bring students and see their work.
