This spring CCAE proudly presents Raise the Roof, a show of work by students and teachers, past and present.
When a leaky roof threatened an art studio in the spring of 2010, Cambridge Center students took action. The result was an art exhibit and sale that not only showcased some extraordinary talent, but raised badly needed funds for roof repair. In May 2012, "Raise the Roof" returns.
"This is one of the most exciting art exhibits the Cambridge Center for Adult Education has ever done," says executive director Susan Hartnett. "We will be hanging more than 400 works of art by 150+ artists at all stages in their careers - from the most accomplished to the very beginner."
All work on display will be offered for sale to the public — most of it in the very affordable $100 - 300 range.
"The proceeds will be split 50/50 between the artist and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education," says Hartnett. "CCAE will use its share to fund improvements to our class rooms, including but not limited to new lighting, new storage units and new sinks."
