Pioneer High Art Show Takes Trip to Panther Islands

The public is invited to “take a trip to the Panther Islands” during Pioneer Valley High School’s Student Art Show, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. May 30-31 in rooms near the school cafeteria.

The event is free to attend, but patrons must go to the administration office, sign and get an ID badge. Parking is available in visitor spaces by the flag pole.

While visiting Panther Islands, the community can view a collection of work from these small island countries located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean between Mexico and Hawaii. The fictional coordinates are 30 degrees north and 135 degrees west.

Highlights of the journey include the totem pole of Captain R. Charlie who discovered the Islands, the Butterfly Sanctuary and scale model figures of island people and their houses. The trip also displays holiday traditions, arts and crafts and the mighty Great Dragon Patumy.

Included is the ancient god Jueluel and examples from the mask and puppet theatre traditions, and a meeting with King Procrastination.

Also, on display in the Bodacious Panther Island Museum are artifacts and works that have been showcased throughout Santa Maria during this academic year. The exhibit concludes with selected works of art from the George Karamitsos Grand Gallery and the Industrial Showcase.

For more information call 922-1305 ext. 5312.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
