Student Art Exhibit Goes Diocesan-wide

art-show-exampleArt done by Episcopal school students will be on display both in Corpus Christi at the annual Diocesan Council in February and at the Cathedral House Gallery in the Bishop Jones Center in March.

Some 150 pieces of art from 12 schools will be part of the exhibit. Student artists come from grades one through 12.

The idea for the exhibit came from Patti Reed, wife of Suffragan Bishop David Reed, herself an artist and art teacher. “This is a great opportunity for our Episcopal school students to display their talents and for us to promote the value of an Episcopal school education,” said Patti Reed.

The exhibit debuts at the AmericanBank Center in Corpus Christi as part of the 109th Council, February 21-23, where parents, grandparents, and others are invited to view it. Exhibit hours are 1 to 5 pm on Thursday, February 21; 9 am to 5 pm on Friday, February 22; and 9 am to noon on Saturday, February 23.

After Council, the exhibit moves to Cathedral House Gallery at the Bishop Jones Center in San Antonio where it will open with a reception on Sunday, March 3, 2 to 4 p.m. It will hang in Cathedral House Gallery until April 12 and will be available for viewing during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cathedral House Gallery is located in the Bishop Jones Center at 111 Torcido in San Antonio.
