Wow, talk about a busy year at the Kings Art Center! This year we have had a total of 10 exhibits shown at the Kings Art Center, six in the Marcellus Gallery, four in our Members Gallery and two in Banister studio. More than 2,000 people came to view our exhibits this year.
Our educational program was a big success this year as we had over 600 enrollees in our Arts Program. Our students created everything from bugs to whales, jewelry to masks, pyramids to murals, and much, much more! The summer arts program students were thrilled to have their artwork hung in Banister Study for our Evening of the Arts exhibit, where they were able to show off their creations!
Along with our Evening of the Arts exhibit that we do for the children of Kings County, we currently have a spectacular Young Masters Show in Banister Studio that runs until December 29th. This show has over 200 pieces from students all over Kings Counties. A special thanks to Marilyn Peterson and Tedra Battaglia for all their hard work in making this exhibit a success.
We have some exciting events coming up to put on your calendars! First up is the Guild’s Annual Home Tour on Sunday, December 8th. We’re so looking forward to another great night in supporting the arts, and we’d love for all our members to join us for what will be a wonderful evening! This is a great opportunity to check out the work in the Marcellus Gallery of our current exhibit, the Winter Show, featuring our the members of the Kings Art Center.
The future is bright at the Kings Art Center with our exhibits, workshops, after-school art classes and so much more! We look forward to seeing all our members enjoy all that the KAC has to offer. Hope to see you all soon!
