GUEST ARTISTS TO PRESENT AT SUNDAY OPENING 1/8/12
In addition to presentations by our two AIR practicing artists, Sunday's Open House (January 8th from 1-4PM) will feature art work by sixteen student artists in addition to pencil drawings by high school history teacher, James Ouellette, of Enosburg High School, who is currently taking drawing classes from Rebecca Anne Bennett at her Blue Crayon Studio in the rear of the AIR Gallery.
Jim Ouellette says, "taking the classes has made me much more observant about color and line. I have since pretty much restricted myself to the pencil. My colored drawing of an adobe mission (below) was based on a drawing in an art book."
Student Artists: Art instructor Pat Murphy explains, "This student show has become a tradition at the [AIR] Gallery. Local High School Art Teachers from Enosburg and Richford showcase examples of the high quality art work being produced. The work includes drawing in various media, painting, and sculpture. It's always exciting to see art whose point of view is different from the work that is usually presented at the gallery." Following is a list of student artists participating in Sunday's show:
