The Sherman School will host its 23rd annual art show May 13-14.

The show will be open May 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., followed by a reception that evening from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The reception will coincide with the Sherman Education Association's ice cream social.

Under the direction of the school's music teacher, Steven Trinchillo, some students will offer

live musical performances.

The show will also be open May 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Route 37 East school.

More than 1,000 pieces of two- and three-dimensional works will be displayed by students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth.

"Among the nearly 40 projects included this year, visitors will find ceramic sculptures, prints, paintings, drawings and collages interpreting a wide variety of themes," said art teacher Alisyn Hamilton.

"This year, we have expanded the ceramics program, adding several new projects," she said.

More than 30 parents have helped prepare the show, along with art paraprofessional Jody Clark and art assistant Gina Romano.
