…an endless note galloping longingly over imagination…
Tuesday, September 29 - Thursday, October 29, 2009Central Gallery
Free and open to the public
An exhibition of student works from the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts in South Hadley, MA
Organized and curated by PVPA Art Instructor, Petula Bloomfield
Curator's Statement: For the last six years, I have had the great pleasure and privilege to teach and work with an extraordinary group of young people from 7th to 12th grade at PVPA. During this time, I have watched students who claimed to have no creative ability or who lacked confidence, progress to find ways to express themselves with astonishing visual eloquence. It is a testament to the discovery of the rich and rewarding efforts of people working together with the creative process.
