Suncoast News staff report

Pasco-Hernando State College’s Rao Musunuru, M.D., Art Gallery will display artwork from students of the Red Apple School in an exhibit titled “Creative Works.”

An opening reception for the exhibition, sponsored by the PHSC Student Government Association, will be held 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21. The exhibit continues through Sept. 25.

The first art exhibit of the new season, “Creative Works” stands as a true testament to the Red Apple School’s mission to educate and nurture developmentally disabled adults, Courtney Boettcher, the college’s assistant director of marketing and communications, explained in a press release.

Gallery visitors will experience first-hand the result of the student’s artistic exploration as they overcome physical challenges independently and with hand over hand assistance.

Among works will be “Butterflies,” by Joann Bryant.
