A reception was held on September 12th to celebrate the opening of the new Malden Catholic School for Girls Art Gallery. The school collaborated with Malden Arts and the Zonta Club of Malden to bring an inaugural gallery exhibit featuring Watercolor Women by Faith Rice. The organizations share a unified mission for advancing the lives of women and the Watercolor Women collection celebrates the gifts and talents of women from around the world.
The new principal of the Malden Catholic School for Girls, Lisa Cenca, welcomed artist Faith Rice, the sponsoring organizations and guests, including Mayor Gary Christenson and City Council President Debbie Demaria. The school, located at 99 Crystal Street, recently launched its inaugural school year with nearly 80 ninth-grade students. The plan is to add a grade annually over the next three years. As part of the event, students offered guests a tour of the new state-of-the-art facility that was designed to encourage a collaborative, innovative and supportive learning environment. The gallery consists of an exhibit space with natural light and will highlight the work of local artists. Malden Arts will continue to coordinate two exhibits per academic semester and encourage local artists to participate.
