Kings Playhouse Gallery in Georgetown will present two art exhibitions in June, First Bloom and Rahma & Friends–Seeking Refuge.
The second installment of Montague Regional High School’s First Bloom exhibit will feature original works by Grade 12 students. This mixed media exhibition muses on a variety of themes, highlighting each artist’s individual experience in their art education. First Bloom is on view daily until June 18.
Opening June 19, in honour of World Refugee Day, The Playhouse Gallery will present Rahma & Friends—Seeking Refuge, an exhibit featuring portraits by 10 year old Rahma, whose family fled Syria to Jordan in 2013. Rahma spends her time drawing and the walls of her room are plastered with portraits of friends and family. Rahma’s art, as well as pieces by young artists living in refugee camps around the world, will be on display until July 31. The show’s opening reception will be held June 19.
