Please join us for the 2023 Annual Aquidneck Island High School Art Show
In Memory of Rosemary Day: " A Great Educator Lives Forever"
AND: Paintings and Sculpture by the late Anthony Quinn
In collaboration with the Anthony Quinn Foundation, supporting Art in Education
February 10-20, 2023
The Annual Aquidneck Island High School Art Show, hosted by the DeBlois Gallery will have an opening reception on Friday, February 10,. from 4 to 7 pm. The late Rosemary Day, devoted art teacher at Middletown High School and a member of the DeBlois Gallery, firmly believed that her students should have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in public. Thus the DeBlois, with the efforts of the high school art teachers, art students, and private donors, continues the tradition of the annual show that Rosemary Day started over 20 years ago.
This year we welcome the Anthony Quinn Foundation in celebrating the creativity of our young art students with the artwork of Anthony Quinn, famous Oscar-winning actor and an extraordinary artist. It was because of his artistic talent that he received a scholarship in high school that would help to launch his phenomenal career.
Participating schools are Middletown High School, Portsmouth High School, the Met School and Rogers High School.
Show dates are: Saturday, February 11 through Monday, February 20, 1-5 pm. Free
admission, all welcome and ample free parking.
