The theme of the Gallery Shop Fall Reading List is Sharing Our World. We have been inspired by AGGV Exhibition The Street and how it depicts interactions and boundaries between people, cities, and natural spaces.
By April Caverhill, New Extreme Mentorship Program Coordinator
Artistic expression was in abundance this spring as our New Extreme youth groups and artist mentors collaborated on their projects.

I’ve learned so much from this year’s artists and students, and I am already looking forward to next year’s partnerships.
