Parkland School District


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.
