Northern pARTners-Aroostook County Regional Art Educators

The pARTners are hosting the Essence of the North Student Art Exhibition at the Aroostook Centre Mall in Presque Isle, Maine in recognition of Youth Art Month. The exhibition will be one of the stops on the First Friday of the Month Art Walk on March 7th sponsored by the Presque Isle Chamber of Commerce. The exhibition will be on display from March 1 through April 5. There will be an Artists’ Reception on Friday, March 14, at the site of the exhibition from 7-7:30 PM. There will be collaborative weaving for attendees to add to and a scavenger hunt which will involve identifying various objects from within the art work. Districts participating are from Houlton, Hodgdon, Mars Hill, Easton, Fort Fairfield, Presque Isle, Washburn, Caribou, Limestone, Connor Township, and Frenchville/St. Agatha.

Presque Isle elementary school art teacher Ruth McAtee says of the exhibit:

“We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to show work from around the county at one location while the Jr. Biathlon and other events at the mall makes this year unique…..Our students get a varied range of audience and the mall gets an attraction for its guests, employees and shoppers.  It is interesting how many mall walkers and employees frequently visit the gallery. This year we have a collaborative weaving and scavenger hunt on the reception night.”
