Shoreline Art Gallery – Winter exhibition announcement and invitation to participate!


The Shoreline Art Gallery would like to share some news on an upcoming event and a call for participation!

Upcoming event… 

Let’s get together and celebrate our students! 

This quarter, the Shoreline Art Gallery will be putting together an exhibit titled, Shelter in Place. This student-focused exhibition will feature creative works made during remote learning that illustrates what the experience was like for students and how the arts and creative projects provided a platform for community and connection. This exhibit is intended to honor and recognize the obstacles that our remote students had to overcome during this challenging period and to celebrate their achievements. 

As focus of this exhibition, a selection of photographic work from Shoreline Intermediate and Advanced students will be on display that highlights how arts-based practices can serve emerging student artists as a pedagogical tool for providing purpose and healing during times of crises. 

The tentative dates for this exhibition are March 3rd through April 7th. Reception date TBD.
