Dates: May 1-31, 2016

Kindergarten-8th grade students from St. Ignatius Catholic School (under the instruction of art teacher Brennan Gibson) will be presenting an ocean-themed exhibition “Sea Change,” featuring papier-mâché sculptu​res, mixed media collages, assemblages, and paintings. Most of the projects will utilize recycled materials. Students explored a variety of techniques including printmaking, mosaic, and collage. Grades K-5 made art inspired by different sea creatures and their habitats. Grades 6-8 created artwork in response to pollution found along our beaches and the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The artists goals are to highlight the beauty of our oceans and marine life while bringing attention to the dangers facing ​our oceans​. Specific artwork will be for sale and all proceeds will go to MAC and the ​Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The student exhibit will be on display at MAC during the month of May in the Skinny Gallery. Meet the artists on ArtWalk night, May 13th, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. The gallery will be open from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM on weekdays.
