Kingston to Scottsdale Teen Art Exchange 2021

Growth by Phoebe Davis.jpg

This special exhibition featured artwork created by students from our sister city Kingston, Ontario, Canada. In turn, the work of student artists from Scottsdale were placed on display at Kingston’s Tett Centre in August, 2021. 

“The works of Art & Design in this exhibit represent the creative energy of the students who were enrolled in the 30th Anniversary of the Creative Arts Focus Program of the Limestone District School Board in Kingston, Ontario. The original works were completed in December 2019 and then reproduced for participation in the July 2020 Scottsdale/Kingston Sister City Youth Arts Exchange. It is with great joy that now in 2021, the students and I can share this beautiful work with our Sister City, Scottsdale, and we look forward with equal joy, to sharing the works of Art and Design from the students of Scottsdale with the Kingston Community, later this summer. With Tremendous Thanks & Best Wishes Always, Karen Peperkorn, Creative Arts Focus Program.”

This exhibition is organized by the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association, Scottsdale Public Library: Mustang Branch and Scottsdale Artists’ School.
