The opening reception—“Creativity Opens Doors!”—will be held on Friday, June 2, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, during the First Friday Downtown Art Walk.  Wintergreen’s Community Support Day follows on Saturday, June 3, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Both events are free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

“Our Community Support Day is a day of celebrating creativity and being thankful,” said Kim Guerrette Michaud, chairman of the board.  “Throughout the year, Wintergreen touches the lives of so many people through creative experiences, quality arts programming, events, and family opportunities.  We are extremely grateful for our partners, volunteers, and supporters.  This is a very special day to thank them for their commitment and dedication.”

On Saturday, doors open at 10:00 am for the public to tour the Center, enjoy refreshments, and get creative.  A variety of craft projects will be set up for the young and young-at-heart.  Face painting will also be available and a showing of student art projects will be the highlight of the day.

Student art projects to be on display include the book “Our Stories” written and illustrated by Mrs. Athena Hallowell’s after-school students; photos, props, and memorabilia from Miss Darci Faye’s youth theater plays, “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Adventures in the World of Luster,” and the musical, “We Are Monsters.”  The Presque Isle Community Garden fence project currently being completed by Mrs. Kara Addington’s students will be featured along with art projects by Mrs. Lisa Brewer and Mrs. Katie Greenlaw’s preschool students, Wintergreen’s homeschoolers’ classes, and more.
