Sarah Loewen and Elizabeth Burke, Mt. Blue High School  students of Roger Bisaillon, art teacher, will be exhibiting their work through April 29 at the Wilton Free Public Library. The mostly large and colorful paintings and drawings explore nature, movement, and architecture.

Sarah Loewen is a senior at Mt. Blue High School. In recent years, art has become a large part of her life. She says: “It is my way of problem solving and escaping the world around me. Travel has allowed me to hold a different viewpoint than many of my peers. The ability to explore the world physically, as well as through art, is what has shaped my viewpoints. After graduation my plan is to study biology in Nova Scotia as it is a place that has greatly influenced my life. Art has provided me with skills that couldn’t have been found through the written word. Although I will not be studying art it will remain a large part of my life.”

Elizabeth Burke quotes Michelangelo, who said “A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.” She says of herself: “Art exercises my brain in an unconventional way that AP and honors classes don’t. I have always admired pieces of art but taking a pencil, paint brush, or oil pastel makes me think about every stoke I make. Art has been a way for me to express my feelings without using adjectives.  The human brain needs a way to express emotions and art is a powerful outlet for thoughts. As a junior at Mt. Blue High School I have taken eight art classes, six of them this year. I am focusing my studies on the medical field; science runs in my veins. My grandfather was a general surgeon, my father was a cardiac surgeon before becoming a radiologist in Iowa and I hope to follow in their footsteps. I can only hope that I will someday become as good a doctor as they were. Out of school I spend my time scuba diving around the world, this March I traveled to Roatan, Honduras and had the time of my life.”
