Check out the latest AS220 Youth showcase that was curated in part by  Gaby Molenado, part of AS220’s AmeriCorps*VISTA team!

The many artistic talents of young Rhode Islanders are on display including photography and painting in the Second Annual Youth Art Exhibit, an exhibit of art work by young artists who are part of the AS220 Youth Studios. The work is on display now through January 28, 2012 at the Atrium Gallery at One Capitol Hill, a gallery space managed by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts.

Scott Lapham, one of the show’s curators, said, “All of us here at AS220 Youth are excited to share with the wider community the extraordinary artwork our students have been producing over the last six months. From concept to creation to exhibition our students are taking ownership of their own creativity. Please join us at the Atrium Gallery as we celebrate our student’s artwork in a show we are calling Think Make Do!”  A reception and awards program for the artists will be held Thursday, January 19, 2012 from 6 to 8:30pm.

This performance exemplifies my excellent techniques in art as a classically trained violinist and experience in culinary arts. This piece should be taken seriously. Performed at Freequencies, an event produced by Jessica Thompson’s DMS 215 class.
