AN SCA TRADITION
For the twenty-sixth year, the Art à Loan program is returning to the Saugatuck Center for the Arts to feature work from Saugatuck Public School students. The annual Art à Loan opening reception with art leasing will take place Wednesday, September 15.
The Art à Loan pieces are selected by area art professionals and are comprised of student artists ranging from grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. Each piece is professionally matted, framed and labeled with tags identifying the program, the artist and grade level.
Danielle Hanna, Saugatuck High School’s art teacher, and Melissa Pawlak, Douglas Elementary and Saugatuck Middle School’s visual art teacher are both passionate about building community through art and are grateful to belong to a supportive and engaging art community. Danielle and Melissa both agree that their students feel the support and connection from the community and the Art à Loan helps them be a part of something truly special and unique.
Following the opening event, Art à Loan will be on display in the Saugatuck Center for the Arts Gallery from 9 am to 5 pm weekdays and during performances through October 13, 2021. Admission is free of charge.
All student pieces from the 2021 Art A Loan program have been leased.
Lessors can pick up their art work at the SCA box office on October 14 or 15 from 10 am – 4pm.
Thank you to Sarah Harris with The Nines Gallery and Framing Studio in Holland for making the framing of this year’s show a reality.
