“Thirteenth Grade” Art Exhibit in Gallery 2

Jessie Robertson “Banana Frog”

What do you get when you have five high school artists who have worked together for five years? You get a gallery show on their Thirteenth grade year! The artists Harry Antoniades, Robby Carl, Sarah Miller, Jessie Robertson and Holly Woodcock have each developed an original style of work and continue to experiment in multiple mediums.

Owner of Art in Bloom Gallery, Amy Grant first met the artists about one year ago and recognized the originality of the art and dedication of the artists. The students developed a detailed proposal for their own art exhibit at Art in Bloom Gallery. The student artists all attend Wilmington Early College High School and are taking art classes at Cape Fear Community College. They have all been mentored since their freshman year by Dr. Janna Siegel Robertson who is their art club teacher. Besides creating art, the students have been learning about the entrepreneurial side of art by participating in craft shows and art shows this past year. The opportunity at Art in Bloom Gallery is the first time their art has been exhibited in a commercial gallery.

The opening reception is Friday, November 2, 6-8pm with the exhibit continuing through Saturday, November 24. Visit with the artists and enjoy refreshments with live music. The exhibit will be shown in conjunction with “Traveling Light” A Collaborative Exhibit by Gale Smith & Alice Blake Powell exhibit located in Gallery 1.
