The new Wilde Lake Student Gallery opened yesterday at Slayton House. The first exhibit, "Out of the Woods," is displaying works by young artists from Bryant Woods Elementary School.

Yesterday, the students were welcomed at a reception in the Wilde Lake Room of the Slayton House Gallery, where their artwork will be exhibited until July 1.

Bernice Kish, gallery director, says she hopes this is the first student display in what will become a continuing feature of the gallery, giving all the Wilde Lake schools a chance to show the best work of their young artists.

Mary Kay Figarty of the Foundry Street Gallery in Owen Brown Shopping Center has been working closely with the students to help coordinate this first exhibit.

"This is a fabulous exhibit," Ms. Figarty says. "The quality of the artwork by these kids is really impressive. A lot of people will be pleasantly surprised."

Bryant Woods students whose work is on display include: Justin Alexander, Erica Beall, Alec Best, Yvette Brereton, Oliva Brumfield, Kory Campbell, William Dietrich, Chris Edwards, Andrea Elliott, Megan Eskey, Yaser Fahmy, Emily Flanagan, Bryan Foster, Laura Gottschalk, Kenny Hauck, Altse Hickok, Andy Kirsch, Elizabeth Landeros, Moonah Mohammed, Michael Moore, Ian Jones-Quartey, Zehra Qureshi, Terry Rinker, Noemi Rivera, Hannah Schwab, Josh Sylvia, Kenneth Thornton, Naomi Tranen, Ivy Warren, Nichole Wishnies, Kim Woods and Ethan Zweig.

Sharon Lea, camp coordinator for Camp of the Arts, says a two-week session has been added to the popular theater arts program.

Scheduled from June 20 to July 1, this two-week session, as with the three-week sessions later in the summer, will give children ages 7-15 a unique opportunity to learn theater skills, build self-esteem and, of course, have fun.

Camp hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and extended care is available.

The cost is $185 for Columbia Association lien payers; $201 for others. The cost includes the registration fee.

As the eve of destruction of Wilde Lake High School approaches, school officials and students have struggled to schedule the many "last" events to be held at the school.

One of those last events occurred this past weekend. Laughter echoed and tears flowed in the hallways and classrooms of Wilde Lake when hundreds of former students, teachers and administrators were invited back to visit the school. They came to see old friends and roam through the once familiar corridors of the school one last time before it is torn down at the end of this school year.

One of the better programs scheduled at the school is a June 4 concert by former Wilde Lake graduate Brian Ganz.

Mr. Ganz, an internationally acclaimed pianist, will be returning to his alma mater for this benefit performance at the invitation of the Steven Daniel Jeffreys Foundation.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.

Advance sale general admission tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets are currently available at An Die Musik, David's Natural Market in Wilde Lake Village Center and the Cover to Cover Bookstore Cafe in Owen Brown Village Center.

Tickets will be $15 and $13 at the door.

Call 992-4166 for other ticket locations or additional information about the concert.
