This will be the 12th annual art show by Danforth C.T.I. The show could not take place in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are all very excited to once again be able to showcase all the impressive work created by Danforth students,” said Jokinen.

There are expected to be close to 300 works exhibited in the show ranging from paintings, photography, printmaking, ceramics, digital media and drawings.

The XHIBITART23 Opening Gala will start on Thursday, May 11, at 5 p.m., at the Papermill Gallery and will continue until 8 p.m.

The opening gala reception will be catered by Danforth C.T.I. hospitality students. Music at the reception will be performed by music students from the school.

The Papermill Gallery is located within Todmorden Mills, 67 Pottery Rd., and the gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday to Sunday.
