From April 28th through May 1st, IACS seniors and juniors will be displaying some of their artwork at the Brush Art Gallery in downtown Lowell. For the seniors, students Vivian Cook, Emily Gibbs, Cassidy McAuliffe, Victoria Miller, Luke Sheehan, and Kayleigh Sorrentino will show pieces from their Senior Series. In addition, juniors Hannah Abramo, Edith Collins, Chelsea Costa, Allison DiGesse, Amber Hayes, Katharine Keenan, Jessica Newcomb, Caitlin Pichette, and Phoebe Shaw will show highlights from their portfolios.

These two students were the product of an extensive selection process, beginning with a school wide competition to choose the two IACS candidates.
