Dear MBA Alumni, Family, and Friends,
Please join us for the 2018 Montgomery Bell Academy Art Show, to be held in the Davis Gallery, beginning Thursday, November 8, 2018.The 2018 Art Show will continue its successful tradition of showcasing both alumni talent and the artist talent of our vibrant MBA community of friends, family, and faculty, as well as local and regional artists.
This year's show will run from Thursday, November 8 through Sunday, November 18.A percentage of the proceeds from the exhibit will benefit our parent organization, the MBA Mothers Club, and the fine arts programs at MBA. This year’s Featured Artist, Blek LeRat, (http://www.blekleratoriginal.com) brings international acclaim for his work, and will create original on-site mural work at MBA, including a live event. We anticipate a large media following for his presence, which should translate into greatly boosted exposure for participating artists.
