Scout & Co. Showcases Portraits by Winooski Middle Schoolers 

Self-portraits made by middle school students in Winooski will be displayed at Scout & Co. coffee and ice cream shop on East Allen Street as part of an exhibit entitled "Identity Through Art," which runs through the end of November. The 28 portraits of students in grades 6, 7 and 8 celebrate the diversity of the school — where about 20 languages are spoken — as well as students' individuality and unique points of view.

"Drawing my self-portrait really helped me to express my identity," said student artist Logan Erwin. "Seeing as I'm part of the LGBTQ community, I added rainbow colors into the background to represent that part of who I am. I'm a little nervous about sharing my art," Logan added, "but I like stepping out of my comfort zone, so I'm excited to see my portrait on display downtown."

Student work was professionally matted by Art Works Frame Shop & Gallery and installed by Cornelius & Company fine art installation, both local businesses.

A special reception for the exhibit will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 21, during the monthly Winooski Art Walk.
