Blue Rock School, in partnership with Rockland Center for the Arts, will be presenting an art exhibition to support creative expression and social activism while benefiting the student scholarship funds at both organizations. Artistically, the goal of the show is twofold: to showcase art that touches on issues of significant importance among our community members; and highlight the important role that artists can play in amplifying a message or point of view and effecting meaningful change in the world. All this, while inspiring a new generation of artists and raising funds for two Rockland non-profits dedicated toward giving young artists a regular platform for creative expression. In addition to featuring more established artists, area high school and college-age artists are being encouraged to participate in the exhibit and have their voices heard.
At the VIP Champagne Reception from 7-8 pm guests can enjoy complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres while enjoying an exhibit preview, a poetry reading by renowned poet Samuel Claiborne, and a live auction of acclaimed artist and Blue Rock School alumna Zaria Forman’s signed limited edition print of pastel “Jakobshavn Glacier, Greenland, April 29th, 2017.”
Tickets can be purchased in advance below at a discounted price.
