Setting Up for Scholastics

When we arrived at work on Monday, this is how we found our Warner Gallery:

Kind of a mess.  But the truth is, it’s the first sign it’s time for one of our favorite exhibits: Scholastics.

The artwork you see strewn about the gallery is actually a collection of hundreds of pieces of art that have been submitted by our region’s 7th-12th graders for this years Scholastics Art Awards competition.  Jurors for the program were here all day last Saturday to judge the work which covers a wide array of media—ceramics and pottery, photography, jewelry, and painting to name a few, and in the coming days the Warner Gallery will be transformed into a breathtaking exhibit of creativity and energy, revealed at our “Meet Me in the Gallery” event on Friday, February 3.

Be sure to come out next Friday for this amazing celebration of youth and art!

Beat Winter Blahs with ART!

We’ve come to the end of the first week of a new class session at SBMA, and we’ve found the creative juices flowing in our studies almost intoxicating.  Are you yearning for a winter escape?  A place where you can have fun, unwind, and yet grow at the same time?  Then tell your inner artist to wake up from her long winter’s nap and start creating – it is not too late to register.  The courses we have available promise opportunities for aspiring artists of all interests and ability levels.  Browse our class offerings here: Wntr12Classes and see which artsy itch of yours starts to tingle under those long underwear you’ve got on.  We’d love to see you in our studios!

The Best of SBMA 2011

Skateboards, shopping and Rain barrels…just a few of the things that represent the highlights of the past year here at SBMA. As we cross over from 2011 to 2012, we want to thank all of our members, visitors, students and instructors for all they have done to help make the past year such a successful one here at SBMA.  When the “all call” went out to our staff asking for their favorite memories of 2011, the number of events and accomplishments that were recalled and shared was overwhelming!  We have every reason to look back with gratitude and pride and ahead with excitement.  LEARN MORE about the YEAR’s BEST AT SBMA by CLICKING HERE.
