PRESS RELEASE: Long Trail School Students Exhibit at Equinox Village in Manchester

The Gallery at Equinox Village will feature seven artists in March who use their work to express very different themes: a return to nature, mathematics and the arts, women’s roles throughout history, and the pressures of adolescence.

The artists have created sculptures of cement and wire or plaster and wax. They create two-dimensional images with collage, mosaics or acrylics. What these artists have in common is that they are all students of Long Trail School’s International Baccalaureate Visual Arts Program.
The two-year program begins by honing the basic skills and providing students with a theme to explore each month.

A Gallery Opening Event is co-hosted by Equinox Village and the Greater Manchester Arts Council. It scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 15 at Equinox Village in Manchester Center, Vt. Kindly R.S.V.P. to (802) 362-4061 by Thursday, March 8. The show will be on display 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily from Friday, March 16 until Thursday, April 12.

“I see myself as the students' personal trainer. I demonstrate and show them how to use the equipment, but the amount of personal growth and rewards they will achieve is dependent upon their efforts and abilities to stretch their skills,” comments Long Trail School’s Art Director Anharad Edson.
