Students shine in all-arts show

Posted May 25, 2006

The Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School was abuzz at last Thursday's Evening of the Arts. The annual celebration featured performances from student singers, dancers, actors, and musicians, along with mixed-media visual art displays.

Sketch comedy made the audience laugh while demonstrating the students' acting talent. Musical performances included piano solos and duets, bands, and original songs. Singers belted out tunes to the appreciative crowd and dances from traditional to modern delighted the audience.

Artwork displayed in the every nook and cranny filled the school. Graduating seniors had their portfolios on display in the PAC lobby. As guests made their way through the halls, they came upon students creating art and demonstrating various processes. Musicians playing acoustic instruments greeted guests in the hallways of the school. Art from just about every discipline was on display in an explosion of creativity. The Evening of the Arts was unforgettable.

Self-portraits by student artists (from top left) Juliana Dye, Claire Lindsey, Brigitte Conlon, and Lucia Dillon were on display as part of last Thursday's art exhibit.
