Two empty windows come alive with art! Local artist and Gibbons School parent Derek “DEEK” Diedrickson has been filling storefront windows with art work since the summer. His work can been at his studio on Pearl Street as well as at Rowland's TV Repair Shop on Wyman Street. Mr. Diedrickson wanted to fill more windows and approached Gibbons School art teacher Carolyn Corrente about the possibility of including student work in more empty windows. Jumping on board, the fourth grader students designed radial weavings full of texture on recycled CDs. They look beautiful, especially when the sunlight reflects off the shiny discs! Third graders collaborated together to create a wall sculpture made entirely of paper cylinders. With the help of Amne Parsons and Kathy Billo, the artwork was installed in two windows in the vacant Malcolm and Parsons Building on the corner of Freeman Street. Be sure to check them out and great job Gibbons School artists!
