Evening of the Arts Just Around the Corner

Fairfield County is no stranger to the art event. Just 35 miles as a crow flies from one of the artsiest cities around, Manhattan’s furthest suburb has been known to hold its own when it comes to showing off creative minds’ latest creations.

Picture it: classical music sets a cerebral scene as specially focused lights train on latest works while art enthusiasts enjoy freshly poured drinks and hors d’oeuvre. Those that come out in droves to see these latest exhibits have the luxury of speaking first hand to the artists whose pieces are on display.

Master violinist Margot Kenagy '14 will be performing at this year's Evening of the Arts.

Where is this magical gallery? You may find yourself asking, immediately promising yourself a spot on their list of attendees. Why, look no further than the Evening of the Arts located conveniently in The Fireplace Commons here at St. Luke’s School.

On Friday, April 25th, our revered art teachers, Mrs. Cole and Ms. Yankura, have curated the perfect environment for student-artists’ masterpieces to be hung on display for St. Luke’s most enthusiastic art aficionados. Each of St. Luke’s proficient senior talents will display their most prized pieces followed by inspiring poetic recitations by our very own Smith and Scholastic Poetry Prize winner, Maria Juran.

And that’s not all! Lizzy McLaughlin 14′, Riley Vaske ’14, and Kevin Jahns ’14 will also present their poetic masterworks at five o’clock sharp. But wait—there’s more! As a grand finale, the musically inclined students will be performing their own compositions.

Imagine browsing the maze of exhibits while appreciating the beautiful melodies of senior Margot Kenagy’s violin as she graces the school with her musical gift.

Surely, it’s a night not to be missed. With Metro North as expensive and unreliable as ever, the Evening of Arts sure beats trekking into the city for a similar event. Be sure to join us on the Hilltop from three o’clock to six to appreciate fine art, food, and drink!
