month of May. Mr. Daniel Rockett, the Talented
Visual Arts Teacher, is exhibiting a collection of
pencil portraits titled, "Olympus". The subjects of
all of the drawings are students and young people
in the community. There is a twist to the portraits,
however, as each of the titles suggests. They are
each named for one of the Greek gods, and the
viewer must decipher the meaning of the connection.
He had each student represent one of the gods in
some way, through their pose, their prop, or their
activity. You must know your Greek mythology well
to determine all of the meanings hidden in the drawings.
Since Mr. Rockett was one of my students (a long time
ago!!), I believe the whole "riddle" idea must have
rubbed off on him!
The show can be viewed during shop hours, 10-5
Monday thru Friday, and 10-3 on Saturday. There will
be an artist's reception on May 5 from 3 pm to 6 pm.
Everyone is invited to come and view these beautiful
and intriguing drawings.
