WHSVisual Arts students and alumni helping out the Farmers Market

WHSVisual Arts students and alumni helping out the Farmers Market

Calling all Art students… are you bored with summer yet? Looking for something artistic to do?

Mrs Schilling has a fun project just for you. For the past two days, Visual Arts students and alumni have been working to beautify the Farmers Market shed at Hall Park. These photos show the project in progress. “It’s looking great but is not done yet. I will be there tomorrow at 8:00am with students to continue work on the project. Come down to help out. I would love to see you there.” said Mrs Schilling.

Calling all artists!

This is a note from Joy Schilling…

Calling all Artists… Please come help me paint.

Hall Park, Wakefield, MA  Tuesday June 28 and Wednesday June 29 from 8:00 -11:30 am.

I have been asked to paint the new storage shed at Hall Park. The shed stores the equipment for the Farmer’s Market held every Saturday during the summer. Currently, the shed is sad and ugly. I have a plan to paint the shed and “jazz it up” just a touch. If you have the time, I would love for you to come down to Hall Park, next to Veterans Field to help me out with this awesome project. I’ll have everything necessary to do the job right. Come down to Hall Park, catch up with old friends, make your summer worthwhile, and help me out to get the job done.

The Cultural Exchange has plans to host an event on the first Thursday of every month for people to come downtown and enjoy local Art, Culture & Commerce in Downtown Wakefield.

Here are some photos from last night’s event. 

The Albion Cultural Exchange has an open main floor gallery with natural light pouring in from palladium windows and is in the heart of Downtown Wakefield at 9 Albion Street.
