Addison, TX, 02/05/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/
For more than forty years the June Shelton School and Evaluation Center, a world model in the education of individuals who learn differently, has been engaging, enriching and empowering students with learning differences, including dyslexia and related disorders, and helping them succeed.
The school has an impressive roster of Alumni including Dallas-based entrepreneur and Globe Runner CEO Eric McGehearty who credits much of his business success to his time studying at the Shelton School.
In an effort to give back to the school that has given so much to him, Eric’s SEO and Online Marketing Company will soon turn over its walls to house some of the Shelton School’s top artwork from students of all age groups who are overcoming learning differences.
The student showcase begins on Monday, February 8th and will run until Friday, February 12th. On opening night, Wednesday, February 10th, parents are invited to come see the immense talent that’s been fostered by the Shelton School’s Fine Arts Program.
In total, roughly 20 art pieces of all mediums will be viewable at Gallery 550, located inside Globe Runner’s Addison office. This is the first time in the school’s history that students will show in one of Addison’s few art exhibits, and the city’s first business and gallery combination.
“As a sculptor and MFA graduate of the University of North Texas, supporting and encouraging future artists is as close to my heart as the Shelton School itself,” Eric says, “The goal of Gallery 550 was always to make meaningful contributions to the Addison community through art. I’m so pleased to have found a way to support both the community at large as well as the invaluable work and enormous talent of the Shelton School.”
Linda Kneese, Head of Shelton School, says, “The arts are a very important part of the education students receive at Shelton. We are proud to be able to highlight their talents in this show.”
