Recycled materials, discarded objects, pretty trinkets left-over from projects past… these are items our students brought from home to create their bibelots.

This Saturday, November 23, The Headley-Whitney Museum will host the opening reception for their new exhibit, “Improbable Baubles.” This exhibit features students from area schools, including 23 pieces from Providence Montessori elementary students. Judges have chosen the winners, and Providence is well represented among them. Congratulations James Baker, Anna Brocato, and Abby Purvis!

Photos of all of our students’ bibelots will be displayed, along with their artist statement. Here are a few to whet your appetite — click here to see more. Many thanks to Sarah Carey for the photos, and art teacher Sue Martin for coordinating our students’ participation. The exhibit runs November 23 through December 22. We hope to see lots of Providence families this Saturday from 2-4pm for the opening. Not only will you get to see these up close and in person, but there will be a candy buffet and rubber band bracelet weaving!
