Fine arts extravaganza slated at Telstar High School


BETHEL — Telstar Middle and High Schools will serve up an artistic buffet for the senses on Wednesday night.

“This year’s Telstar Arts Exhibit, which features a wide variety of films, music and art, will take place at Telstar High School, located off Route 26 in Bethel, from 5 to 8 p.m.,” Melissa Prescott, Telstar Middle School art teacher, said. Wednesday’s Telstar Arts Exhibit is free and open to the public.

The event features many offerings, according to Prescott, including the presentation of student-produced films in the auditorium, an eclectic coffeehouse featuring several acts of students playing music and reading poetry and a large display of multi-media artworks. Refreshments will be available at the show.

“This is the first year we have the middle school participating in the event,” Prescott said. “We have a brand new high school art teacher this year, Sara Holmes,” Prescott said, “and she was instrumental in bringing the two schools together for this event.”

“If the public is unable to stay the full three hours of the show,” Prescott said, “I recommend that they come between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m., when they can catch the most offerings by the two schools.”
