An annual art gala is back at Thomas Haney Secondary School.
The third annual Thomas Haney Art Gala will feature art by students and teachers at the school including photography, painting, sculpture, and digital art.
Easily more than 100 pieces will be on display at the event, explained organizer Madaline Zambolin. Some artists will even be selling their work.
Students look forward to this event, she said, because they get to showcase their work they created over the past year.
Zambolin explained that this year should have been their fifth year putting on the event, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic the gala had to be cancelled twice.
“It’s a opportunity to bring the school together and for the artists to get a chance to put their work out there and show off their amazing talents to the community. Especially after the events of COVID-19 in the past 2 years a celebration for our hard work is long overdue,” noted Zambolin, who personally decided to organize this event with her classmate Jada Westerlaken as a final project at the school.
