The Town of LaSalle along with students from St. Thomas of Villanova High School held “Evolante” an art exhibition on May 15 at the LaSalle Civic Centre. It featured works by students taking part in the arts program at the school.
“As a whole art has created an expressive environment that allows creativity to flourish, for many of us our passion begins with grade 9 and 10 and throughout our high school years,” said student Vanessa Avolio. “Miss Bastien not only changed our perception of what art is but has helped our artistic spirits evolve.”
Some of the grade 12 students in the art program have been involved in the planning of the event. Luke Schwemler, chose the name Evolante, and Sabrina Manitoban and Isabella Scott created the logo. The artist statement, written by Colin Rivait captures the essence of how the students feel about their experiences with art.
In addition to the art exhibition, the Town of LaSalle and the LaSalle Branch of the Essex County Library offered activities for children, as well as music, food and refreshments.
