The TROJAN ART GALLERY began its exhibition calendar with
the beginning of the 1999-2000 school year. The
exhibition program of the TROJAN GALLERY is an integral
part of its art education program. Designed with art
electives in mind, Parkland High School
offers its students in grades nine through twelve, a
choice of craft electives: jewelry and metals, ceramics,
textiles, sculpture, and traditional crafts; PARC
electives include photography, computer graphics, and art
history; and fine art electives include drawing,
painting, printmaking, and portfolio prep.
This offered elective program centers
around a gallery that rotates on two cycles. The months
of September through December feature exhibitions of
current practicing artists of Eastern Pennsylvania.
Exhibits balance both two dimensional and three
dimensional art work and span a variety of styles from
traditional to contemporary.
The months of January through June feature student work
created in the TROJAN ART STUDIOS throughout the course
of the school year. Each month is devoted to a particular
media. The month of May features art work of Parkland
High School seniors and the month of June features a one
man show of the student receiving the senior art award.
Artists in residence participate in rounding out
Parkland's exhibition program by frequently providing
gallery talks and studio critiques.
The TROJAN ART GALLERY is currently operated by its
student Art Gallery Director Nicholas Mazurek,
and art educator Richard Shemonsky.
Visitors are welcome Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM -
2:30 PM or by appointment.
