***Due to inclement weather, postponed until Friday, March 10 at 5 to 7 p.m.***
Grand opening of two gallery exhibits: Youth Art Show in the emerging gallery and Photography of Z Puppets in the professional gallery.
The Youth Art Show highlights art from youth across Austin Public Schools from grades 1-8. It includes a selection of art from all four elementary schools along with art from Holton Intermediate and Ellis Middle School.
The Photography of Z Puppets is an exhibit of photographs showing Austin area students with puppets that they created. Students were photographed during a puppet lab workshop conducted by Z Puppets Rosenschnoz and the ArtWorks Center and at Holton Intermediate. Puppet lab workshops use the scientific method (research, hypothesis, experiment, data collection, etc.) to teach puppet making skills. Z Puppets also use glow-in-the-dark materials and shadow puppetry to expose students to art and science.
Music will be performed at the gallery opening by Ellis Middle School Orchestra musicians in small groups. The event is free and open to the public.
The exhibit will remain on display through March 31 and can be viewed during ArtWorks Center hours, Tue-Fri 10am-5pm and Sat 10am-3pm.
