A new art exhibition will honor nearly three decades of artistry from the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High School.
The exhibit will run from March 9 to April 28 at the Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave, St Petersburg.
Entitled “Pinellas County Center for the Arts: Three Decades,” the show includes works by a dozen current and former teachers, art by alumni from the Class of 1988 to the Class of 2012 and senior thesis exhibitions by students from this year’s graduating Class of 2013. Also on exhibit will be rarely seen archival works from students over the past 30 years, and pieces by the late Laurance Miller, a longtime PCCA teacher who started the photography program at St. Petersburg Junior College, now St. Petersburg College.
The exhibit was designed to celebrate Pinellas County’s first arts magnet, which opened in 1984 and is nearing its 30th anniversary.
An opening night party will be open to the public from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 9, during the Second Saturday Gallery Walk in downtown St. Petersburg. Admission is free.
