Artist Nancy Tobin held her closing reception at CHS today.It was smashing.
She coordinated the closing reception so that it ran throughout the school day.
Students had the opportunity to walk through the gallery during school. Many attended the reception after school. Students and members of the public were treated to finger food and had the chance to speak one on one with the artist.
When I arrived Nancy was in conversation with Maplewood resident Elaine Durbach, a local designer who creates jewelry using sustainable materials. Nancy’s husband, Michael, a fellow blogger, was in attendance. CHS art teacher Beth Schwartz, who teaches art at CHS, attended the closing during my visit.
