Pelham Elementary School and The Mill District General Store & Local Art Gallery invite the public to celebrate a premier installation called “Pieces of Us” which is a mosaic of art pieces by over 120 students at Pelham Elementary School aged 5 through 12. The open house will be this weekend on April 6th and 7th, 2024, from 10am until 3pm.  

 

This Front Window Gallery Exhibit was organized by Emily Stewart, the art teacher at Pelham Elementary. “It is inspired by classroom dialogues around identity and the many characteristics that shape our school community. Each student had full control over their creative expression, within Pelham’s choice-based art studio. The selections they made in subject, media, style, and design invite us to embrace the beauty of their collective diversity and the mosaic of their varied experiences,” says Stewart.

 

Gallery Coordinator Shannon Youtsey Borrell commented that “The Local Art Gallery proudly exhibits the works of over 30 local artists at any given time. With the young artists from Pelham Elementary joining us in the Front Window Gallery, for the next month we are exhibiting over 150 local artists!”

 

Store Manager Molly Crookes goes on to say, “As a Pelham resident, I am excited to see and meet part of my community who are coming out to celebrate the young creative minds of Pelham Elementary School.”  

 

“I am blown away by this whole project” says Lewis Goff, former Language Arts Teacher of Northfield Mount Hermon and Pioneer Valley Preforming Arts, now staff member of The Mill District General Store. “This exhibit is a MUST-see!”

 

The exhibit “Pieces of Us” runs through Saturday, April 27th, 2024 in The Mill District at 91 Cowls Road, North Amherst, MA.
