LMS Student Art Show Opens Dec. 6

This is the image for the news article titled LMS Student Art Show Opens Dec. 6

The artwork of 11 gifted Lincoln Middle School students will be shown at The Dorothea and Leo Rabkin Foundation in a holiday show running from December to January. An opening reception to honor the achievements of the students will be held on Friday, Dec. 6 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the foundation, located at 13 Brown St. in Portland.

LMS art teacher Louis-Pierre Lachapelle led the students in a process of form and inspiration to create the work in the exhibit. He asked each student to choose a modern master and, after studying the work of that master, create a print in homage to that person.

The students also visited the Rabkin Foundation to learn about the work of Leo Rabkin (1919-2015), who loved making prints, but who then would employ “creative destruction” to create new mixed media compositions with them. The students were encouraged to give their own prints a second or third life as new artworks. The Rabkin Foundation then invited the class to exhibit their prints and transformations in the holiday show.
