The ARTs at RBR
Little silver: The Red bank regional commercial photo majors will be holding their annual senior show as an online exhibit through Instagram and Facebook. The (RBR) photo level 4 seniors have been working on their body of work since September of 2019. The show is typically held at a local venue with a reception each year but in light of the national lockdown they have decided to go online and provide a virtual tour of the wonderful creative expressions that they have explored over the past several years The show represents the culmination of 10 artists who have been studying photography together for the past 4 years as part of the visual and performing arts Academy under the direction of Dawn Lisko. The show will feature 100 pieces from 10 students who live throughout the county; ranging from Red Bank to Belmar. Come experience a variety of work from adobe Photoshop techniques to 35 mm darkroom film projects to a combination of mixed media art work. The public is invited to view the show and provide comments and questions and can even inquire about purchasing the work. Please help support the RBR photo majors from the class of 2020.

If you listen to “Lou & Liz in the Morning” on 94.3 FM/”the Point” you may have been surprised to hear a recent skit by a cast of RBR students. It all started when Meaghan McDavitt, the creative writing teacher at RBR, reached out to the show to ask how the students could promote their upcoming Winter Showcase. Soon it was decided that the students would write, sing and perform a sketch where they impersonate Lou & Liz announcing the event. It was a true VPA collaboration in which creative writing students prepared a script performed by a cast of VPA drama majors The piece was then filmed by RBR Interactive Media students. Lou & Liz liked the video so much they asked the students to perform it on the air.No Headlines to display
