Nancy TongWe are pleased to announce a reception for the Lincoln Academy Student Art Exhibition on Thursday, April 3rd from 5 – 7pm at River Arts on Route 1 in Damariscotta.  This exhibit will showcase ceramics and sculpture, complemented by two-dimensional pieces from Lincoln’s advanced and AP art students.  The public is invited to view the works on the night of the reception or anytime during business hours between April 3 – 18. This show reflects an ongoing partnership between River Arts and Lincoln Academy for which instructors Nina Sylvia and Jonathan Mess are very grateful.  The mission of River Arts is “to nurture appreciation, encourage participation and provide opportunity in the arts.” Ms. Sylvia states “it is an uncommon event for students of this age to be able to show their work in a professionally gallery.  We are extremely fortunate to have this opportunity another year.” The art work encompasses wall tiles, functional pottery, sculptures made from unusual materials, charcoal drawings, paintings (of many media), digital images, collages, and mixed media pieces.  Students do all of their own matting and framing and provide artist statements to explain their process. Come meet the artists, enjoy refreshments and help celebrate the students’ hard work and dedication.  The gallery is open on Tuesdays – Saturdays from 10 – 4, and Sundays from 10 – 2.  For more information, visit their website; or call 563-1507.
