LINWOOD — Patrons of the arts will have a chance to check out the work of 90 Mainland Regional High School students at an exhibit running through the end of the month at the Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University in Atlantic City.

There will be a free opening reception with the artists to kick off the exhibit 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 12 as part of the gallery's Second Friday series.

Mainland art teacher Lauren Ashley said the opportunity to submit work for the exhibit was open to all Mainland students regardless of their grade or art class level.

Each student was permitted to enter up to two pieces of their choice, and they were encouraged to submit work they felt most proud of.

The pieces on display include a range of two- and three- dimensional works including watercolor and acrylic painting, drawing, collage, colored pencil, ceramic, mosaic, a sculptural paper piece, pen and ink, and charcoal.

Ashley said this is the first time Mainland has been invited to exhibit at the Noyes Arts Garage, and she and the students are excited at the chance to showcase their work.

The Second Friday reception will include an associate artists exhibit and live music by Andy Dimacale.

The Noyes Arts Garage is at 2200 Fairmount Ave. Hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The gallery is closed Monday and Tuesday.
