Jamestown Public Schools To Open Annual District Student Art Show On Tuesday

The Jamestown Public Schools District will hold its annual district art show opening reception on Tuesday from 6-7 p.m. in the Jefferson Middle School gymnasium.

With more than 225 works of art from kindergarten-through-12th grade, the district’s artists will have the opportunity to showcase their creative art skills to their families and the community.

Each Jamestown art teacher selected about 25 pieces of student artwork to include in the show. After the opening reception, the artwork will be on display at Jefferson Middle School from May 16 through June 6 in the lobby by the auditorium.

“The District Art Show wonderfully showcases the artistic talent of every grade level,” said David Mazzone, Jamestown Public Schools Art Department chairman. “For example, you can see portraits done by a first grader alongside a portrait done by a high school senior. We anticipate exhibiting over 225 student works, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional artistry.”

The show is open to the public from May 16 through June 6. The community is encouraged to visit the art show at Jefferson Middle School during school hours. Those attending should sign in at Jefferson’s main office to visit the district’s artistic showcase.
