“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up”
– Pablo Picasso
Since 1997, when Sue Cook, a Lawrenceville artist, photographer and Chapin parent, envisioned an art gallery that would bring together local artists and students, The Gallery at Chapin has hosted a wide variety of artists from
painters to weavers, woodworkers to photographers, sculptors and digital
Her vision not only promoted the arts through exhibition, but it also benefited students through artists' talks. The artists were able to explain his/her work and perform demonstrations, and students were able to ask questions. Students, faculty and parents always displayed an intense curiosity in the artists and their work, and often come back to look at the work and think further about it.
For the 2015-2016 school year, The Gallery at Chapin will focus on the work of Chapin student artists from prekindergarten through eighth grade. Each grade level will be represented throughout the year. We look forward to highlighting the creativity and enthusiasm of our student artists.
