The Center for Rural Development is hosting an artist reception on Oct. 24 to showcase a new art exhibit by St. Patrick Preschool Program.

The exhibit, now on display, features a collection of art work created by more than 40 students in the 2018-19 preschool program enrolled in the AM and PM classes through an arts education project funded by the Cornelia Dozier Cooper Endowment Fund.

During the project, students learned about quilting, pottery, weaving, and painting from some of the area’s top artists and put their skills to work creating original pieces of art from these different mediums.

The community is invited to meet the young artists and view their work at an artist reception, catered by Karen’s Catering, on Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. in the front lobby at The Center for Rural Development.

“We are excited to host the St. Patrick Preschool Art Exhibit and showcase the original art work by this talented group of young artists,” said Laura Glover, Director of Marketing and Events. “This is one of our most unique art exhibits, because it showcases the importance of arts in the classroom and what children are able to accomplish at a young age.”

Artists working with preschoolers on this project and pieces created for the exhibit were Tara Helser, pottery; Carrie Altmaier, quilting; and Candace Mullins, weaving.

The artist reception is free and open to the general public.

The St. Patrick Preschool Art Exhibit will be on display through Dec. 31.
