Activities Update

Visual Arts Student Exhibition - We are pleased to announce the opening of INTERTWINED: NATURE and MACHINE in the Class of 1965 Rotunda Gallery at Swampscott High School. This show of work created by the Swampscott High School Visual Arts Students was curated by junior visual artist Lauren Hussey and senior visual artist Matthew Stephan. There will be a student opening reception during lunch period on Wednesday, Feb 8th, and a public opening reception that evening from 6 - 7 PM at Swampscott High School.

As described by the student curators, “Intertwined: Nature and Machine is a student-curated showcase of work from Swampscott High School visual artists. The work explores manufactured creations and depictions of nature. Whether created in a studio or out in the field, all art is influenced by the artist’s environment. Nature effects and shapes the way artists design and create. Whether it be a vehicle or a koi fish, nature and machine are intertwined.”

The show features work by SHS students Daphne Floutsakou, Lauren Hussey, Brianna Koslowski, Ariella Nardizzi, Catherine Ospina, Amelia Piepgras, Julianna Rhoads, Marley Schmidt, and Matthew Stephan. The visual artists worked with instructor Anita Balliro. The curators worked with gallery coordinator Joseph Douillette. The show will be up from February 8th - March 8th.
