AUBURN, Mass. – Auburn elementary art students get to show off their work in Auburn's Bay State Savings Bank throughout the summer.
The paintings of third- fourth- and fifth-grade art students from Julia Bancroft Elementary School are on display at the bank at 123 Auburn St.
The exhibit features three 4 by 8 foot panels of Jackson Pollock-style paintings, along with photos and a description of the painting process used by the students.
Gayla Bieksha, the Julia Bancroft art teacher, directed the project while teaching her students about artist Jackson Pollock (1912-1956).
She also chronicled the students’ progress during the painting process, which is depicted in the many photos accompanying the paintings.
Bay State Savings Bank is “hosting the summer exhibit at its Auburn branch to give the Auburn community an opportunity to see the paintings. Visitors are welcome!”
