Harmony Collective to display artwork by Hilltop Montessori students

BRATTLEBORO — Harmony Collective at 49 Elliot Street will be hosting Hilltop Montessori School students’ artwork for the month of February in downtown Brattleboro.

Hilltop’s 50th Anniversary Steering Committee members reached out to the local organization to create this partnership and celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary in a creative, community-connected way.

“We are delighted to be hosting this presentation of the children’s art work from Hilltop Montessori,” said Harmony Collective founder Kay Curtis in a news release. “Children’s art is so uniquely original and spontaneous that all artists can learn from them. As Pablo Picasso once observed, ‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.’”

Curtis said that when the collective opened its gallery three years ago, “we envisioned it being a place to gather the community around art. It is so exciting that we can add the children’s beautiful and profound marks to this offering.”

Harmony Collective is composed of up to 33 Brattleboro artists who are excited about taking an active part in the collective and helping to make the gallery a vital and active space for a creative community. Students will display their artwork in the gallery for February and have the opportunity to be featured as local student artists.

Harmony Collective is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
