OPERA-tion Arts, an opera-inspired art show by area second graders and The Glimmerglass Festival, will be on display in Gallery A at the Cooperstown Art Association.
OPERA-tion Arts is a free, interactive education program that culminates in an opera-inspired art show at The Cooperstown Art Association. Students learn about opera and theater, when Glimmerglass staff members join area second grade classes to offer a multi-media presentation on opera. The students then illustrate their impressions of the art form, producing everything from drawings of performers, scenic and costume shops to sketches of original operas.
The exhibit opens September 27, with a complimentary reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Glimmerglass Young Artist Sarah Parnicky will perform accompaned by Timothy Newton at 5:30 p.m.
This event helps celebrate National Opera Week, October 26 through November 4, coordinated by OPERA America, the national service organization for opera, with support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
