The Annual Aquidneck Island High School Art Show, hosted by the DeBlois Gallery will have an opening reception on Friday, February 10,. from 4 to 7 pm. The late Rosemary Day, devoted art
teacher at Middletown High School and a member of the DeBlois Gallery, firmly believed that her students should have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in public. Thus the DeBlois,
with the efforts of the high school art teachers, art students, and private donors, continues the tradition of the annual show that Rosemary Day started over 20 years ago. This year we welcome the Anthony Quinn Foundation in celebrating the creativity of our young art students with the artwork of Anthony Quinn, famous Oscar-winning actor and an extraordinary artist. It was because of his artistic talent that he received a scholarship in high school that would help to launch his phenomenal career. Participating schools are Middletown High School, Portsmouth High School, the Met School and Rogers High School.
