For one night every spring, art takes over at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School during the Evening of the Arts ceremony.


All art was celebrated on Wednesday at the high school’s Evening of the Arts. Pieces of visual art hung from walls and makeshift pillars while choral group performed selections of their songs.


On Wednesday night, parents and friends flocked to the regional high school for the annual Evening of the Arts and World Culture Night, a student art showcase. Photography, artwork, home designs and even a paddleboard were just a few of the creations on display.



The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School boasts one of the most robust arts department seen outside of a college or graduate arts program. Paul Brissette, chairman of the art, design and technology department, is proud that, at this school, “arts are on an equal par to sports.”


Walls and tables lining the hallways of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School were filled with artwork Wednesday night, as Island art lovers came out in force to admire the paintings, drawings, and sculpture put out by the talented student body for this year’s Evening of the Arts.
