The Kent Place Gallery will present a culminating exhibition of art by ten Kent Place School seniors through Friday, April 22, 2016. There will be a reception for the artists from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 21. The reception at the gallery immediately precedes the Dance Department’s Evening of Dance performance from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., so that visitors who arrive in time can enjoy both events.

The exhibiting students are Elise Bossert, Ariana Cacoulidis, Alaina Cohen, Nadia Fradkin, Sabrina Hunte, Michaila Kaufman, Jessie Levy, Bailey Mikytuck, Olivia Mukherjee, Leigh Whitehorn and Lizzie Yoss. All are completing Advanced Placement art portfolios, which will also be submitted to the College Board in May. They have devoted significant time and focus to developing individual exploration of their artistic interests.

While the direction that each student has taken and the studio problems they set for themselves and solved were individual and varied widely, this year’s graduating class of artists has predominantly worked in a figurative style. The mediums used include painting, collage, ink drawing and screen printing.

“This group represents a wide range of artistic personalities and is amazingly talented. They have surprised me with their fresh ideas and energy throughout the two years that I have worked with them. I know that the larger community, upon spending time in the gallery, will appreciate the high level of achievement represented in this show,” stated Ken Weathersby, the group’s art teacher during their junior and senior years.

Kent Place students who choose to pursue visual arts have enormous opportunities for exposure to advanced visual art, including on-campus exhibitions by professional artists who visit throughout the year, multiple trips to NYC galleries and museums, and an art curriculum that covers every major medium. The Kent Place visual arts program is sensitive to both contemporary understandings and traditional foundations of art. The ten young artists exhibiting in this show have had the opportunity to process that information while discovering something about their own personal aptitudes and the stories they want to tell with their work.

Kent Place Gallery is on the campus of Kent Place School, 42 Norwood Avenue, Summit, NJ.  Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

For more information call (908) 273-0900, or visit www.kentplace.org.

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
