"Just Imagine," the 13th Annual Exhibit of Artwork by RCSD Students, Opened on May 1, 2019 at Rhinebeck's Starr Library; Public Reception to be held on Friday, May 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm
The thirteenth annual group exhibition of works by students attending the Rhinebeck Central School District will be on display beginning May 1 entitled, “Just Imagine!” The public is invited to join faculty and students at a reception on Friday, May 10 from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Starr Library in Rhinebeck.
The exhibit will feature work in a variety of media used in students' art classes and show the expertise students gain as they study art within Rhinebeck Central Schools’ arts curricula under the direction of art teachers Fawn Johnson (CLS), Jennifer Famiglietti (BMS), Kathryn Giles and Cynthia Baer (HS).
While the works reflect the students’ proficiency in using mixed media, drawing (pencil or charcoal), pastel, stained glass, and acrylic painting, they also reflect the themes and interests of the individual students. Some themes reflect local and/or distant outdoor life, others show a student’s self-awareness, while others substantiate the student’s keen understanding of balancing light, and color and hues.
This exhibit provides a spectrum of creative experiences Rhinebeck Central School students in grades K through 12 are exposed to as they participate in Rhinebeck’s course offerings and learn about visual art with its multiple media.
