Student Art Show on Display at the Gruss Jan. 11-31

Posted: January 10, 2013

Fine art created by some of Lawrenceville's most exceptional student artists will be on display in the Gruss Center for Visual Arts from January 11-31. All are invited to a special reception for the show on Thursday, January 24 in the Gruss at 6:30 p.m.

The Gruss is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Visitors are also welcome on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. The Center is open to the public, free of charge.

The show is truly a feast for the eyes, featuring dozens of paintings, drawings, photography, raku pottery, and mixed media pieces. Contributing artists range from Second to Fifth Formers, showing work they've done over the past year both in and out of class. Most of the space in the first floor gallery showcases works created by Lawrentians in the School's Honors Advanced Studio class.

"The Art faculty agrees that this is a stellar show, highlighting the range of our students' technical and creative abilities," said Art Master Jamie Greenfield. "I hope everyone will visit."

Having changed into blazers and ties for the boys and classic black dresses for the girls, the Big Red rowers clearly regarded this as a formal and festive occasion. Indeed, Head Master Steve Murray H’55 ’65 P’16, Athletic Director Tripp Welborne, School Chaplain Sue Anne Steffey Morrow H’12, and two former Olympic gold medalists were on hand to help dedicate two new crew shells – Vespoli eights – generously funded by two anonymous Lawrenceville donors.
