Eighth Grade Students’ Artworks Selected For Exhibition at TCNJ

The artworks of Moorestown Friends School students Robie Driscoll ’18 and Mason Cohen ’18 have been selected for The College of New Jersey’s 2014 Juried K-12 Art Exhibition.

Hundreds of student works were submitted to the exhibition, and final selections were chosen for their innovation and creativity.

The aim of the Juried K-12 Exhibition is to recognize exemplary work created by K-12 students, as well as showcase innovative lessons designed by art teachers. Driscoll and Cohen’s sculptures were nominated by MFS Art Teacher Michael Webster, who teaches 3D art and design has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The TCNJ gallery show will highlight art-making that connects student learning and art to the real world, academic subjects, social issues, big ideas, and/or contemporary art.

The exhibition reception will be held on Sunday, June 8, from 1 to 3 p.m., and all are welcome to attend the opening and to visit the exhibition. The exhibition jurors — Faith Ringgold, Frank Bardachino, Aylin Green, Rebecca Mitchell, and Carol Sterling — will be present at the reception.

The exhibition will be open to visitors on Sundays and Wednesdays from 1 to 3, June 1 through June 22. Special open hours may be arranged for groups and school visits.
