Teacher's Evening Out -9/28/06
1708 GALLERY HONORS LOCAL ART EDUCATORS
September 28, 2006 5-7pm
1708 Gallery is pleased to host its second annual Teacher¹s Evening Out on September 28, beginning at 5pm. The Teacher¹s Evening Out is a celebration of art education, honoring local primary and secondary art teachers. These incredible educators rarely receive the appreciation they deserve and 1708 Gallery seeks to recognize their efforts by inviting them to this special evening. Sue Papa, one of two artists whose work is currently on exhibit as part of the gallery¹s September Symbiosis show, will discuss her work
1708 Gallery invites teachers to use the gallery as a living classroom resource. Monthly exhibitions are educational resources that can serve as tools for students to study traditional and innovative art techniques and issues. The exhibitions can also foster cross-discipline discussions - using art as a springboard into conversations about other important topics and general curriculum concepts.
The Teacher¹s Evening Out provides an opportunity for local educators to collectively experience the gallery and share a common passion for creativity.
Organized by Pam Fox of 1708 Gallery¹s Education and Outreach Committee, this event is made possible by the support of Capital One, Main Art Supply and Framing, and The Community Foundation Serving Richmond & Central Virginia and the Garland & Agnes Taylor Gray Foundation.
