High school art show returns


STOCKBRIDGE -- The Annual Berkshire County High School Art Show returns for its 27th year at Norman Rockwell Museum with a special exhibition opening to be held Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Berkshire Bank.

Students, families and visitors can enjoy an afternoon in celebration of the talented young artists from Berkshire County high schools. The opening event will include refreshments, the chance to meet the artists behind the works on view, as well as attend a special 2 p.m. lecture provided by illustrator James Warhola, nephew of pop artist Andy Warhol. Warhola is best know for his children's book designs.

The original works featured in the Berkshire County High School Art Show include a variety of media, including painting, drawing and sculpture. By participating, the young artists learn how to prepare their work for a gallery show, acquire a personal understanding of the exhibition process, and have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional museum setting.
