"Whalers & Lancers Student Art Show," featuring the artworks of students from New London and Waterford high schools, opens tonight with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Hygienic Art Galleries in New London.
When this show was first proposed to Waterford High School art teacher David Weber, one requirement was that the work submitted had to be for sale. Since that first show, Hygienic has written artist commission checks to more than 100 students totaling several thousand dollars.
The show runs through Jan. 20. For details, visit http://hygienic.org.
