Mt. Blue art teachers Pam Chernesky and Kim Jacques are thrilled to see students’ work return to the Emery Community Arts Center Gallery, since the exhibit provides them an opportunity to share their work with the community, according to a news release from the arts center.

“Artful Antics” is a playful celebration of student voice and choice. The exhibition includes artwork from a wide variety of art courses where artists create original pieces based on their personal interests and ideas. Viewers will experience an extensive range of 2D and 3D materials and processes including collage, painting, printmaking, pastels, mixed media, ceramics, fiber arts and sculpture.

Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 4-6 p.m. Saturday.
