WHAT: A.P.E. Gallery and Zoe Sasson present: Homecoming: 2021 NHS Honors Art Alumni Exhibition

WHERE: A.P.E. Gallery 126 Main Street Northampton, MA.
WHEN: July 21- August 28, 202. Gallery hours Tuesday – Sunday, 2-5pm, & Friday, 2-8pm
A.P.E. Gallery is pleased to present the 4th iteration of the NHS Honors Art Alumni Exhibition, honoring NHS Honors Art teacher, Lisa Leary. It will be curated by ‘07 alumna, Zoe Sasson, running from July 21- August 28, 2021. There will be a reception (and retirement party for Lisa Leary!) on August 13th.This is a particularly exciting exhibition, as it will celebrate 25 Northampton High School alumni from over 10 different generations of art students. The artists all come together with one essential commonality: an admiration for the teaching of Lisa Leary, who stresses a lifelong relationship with fine arts practice and an appreciation for contemporary art. Originally scheduled for summer 2020, the exhibition celebrates Leary’s long career as an art teacher, since she is retiring this spring. This exhibition hosts a diverse range of talent, including alumni who have left the Pioneer Valley to live elsewhere, trained in art schools around the country, and those who have built fruitful careers in the arts.

A.P.E. will also be selling exhibition catalogues, featuring artwork by alumni and designed by summer intern Sarah Müllejans, to help with the costs of the exhibition.

The NHS Honors Art Alumni Exhibition could not be possible without the generous support of the Northampton Arts Council, The Art Angels, our exhibiting artists and their families, and of course, Lisa Leary.

Come visit! For the NHS Alumni show, the gallery will be open Tuesday – Sunday, 2-5pm, & Friday, 2-8pm (or by appointment) A.P.E. may continue to require mask-wearing, distancing, and hand sanitization, and limit the gallery capacity.
