March is Youth Art Month, a month of promoting art and art education nationally. To highlight the importance of the arts in children’s lives and to celebrate, Pemaquid Watershed Association is holding an exhibition of eighth-grade student art at the Pemaquid Watershed Association office-gallery, 584 Main St., Damariscotta.
The multimedia show includes works from eighth-graders taught by Leslie Wicks at Damariscotta Montessori School in Nobleboro, by Karen Hight at Great Salt Bay Community School in Damariscotta, and by Lisa Workman at both Nobleboro Central School and South Bristol School. There is a wide mix of media, including weaving, reclaimed metal sculpture, plaster, drawing, painting, photography, and a metal-and-paper mobile. There will be a few pieces by some of the teachers as well, including a rack of photo notecards made by Workman.
The show will be up through Friday, April 13, and is viewable from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Of the work that will be for sale, a portion of the proceeds from exhibit sales at the office gallery will be donated to PWA.
