Northville Girl Scout Cadets will have their artwork featured as part of "Sisterhood," the Plymouth Community Art Council's (PCAC) new Front Wall Exhibit this month.
Girl Scout Cadet Troop 40844, based in Northville, includes 23 seventh through ninth graders from a myriad of local schools in Northville and Livonia.
Troop Leader Christina Kowalczyk said her troop chose the theme of Sisterhood because they are currently working on their Sisterhood Journey.
“This is the first step toward getting their Gold Award, which is the highest award in Girl Scouting - equivalent to the Boy Scout Eagle Award," Kowalczyk said in a news release. "It also ties into one of the Girl Scout laws, 'Be A Sister to Every Girl Scout.'"
"The pieces are lovely," Lisa Howard, PCAC exhibit director said in an email to Patch. "Each girl did her own canvas with all kinds of affirmation and life lesson phrases."
An opening reception will be held Sunday, April 14 from 2-4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Invitations and posters announcing the exhibit and reception feature "SheArt" by Kate Cox, an affirmation collage and mixed media composition on canvas that contains the words, “she knew she could conquer the world”.
Volunteer service is also part of the experience with the PCAC. Two teams of cadets will be helping to hang the exhibit, and also receive art entries for the PCAC’s 4th Annual Open Juried exhibit featured in the PCAC Main Gallery through the month of April.
