Newtown High School students win acclaim in student art show

Over 140 students from surrounding High Schools submitted works for display in the Lynn Tendler Bignell Gallery in our Mill Building. The show is now also available to view online, but please do not miss it in person. The works are so exceptional our judges had a hard time determining the award recipients in each of 12 categories and the Best in Show. Yet we gave out 37 awards, 3 in each category and the Best in Show.

Congratulations to Newtown High School students who earned award in the Artists on the Rise art show:
