Youth exhibit wraps up Eyes on Main Street season

Local students featured in gallery show

Posted on May 6, 2021

Wide Awake Wilson

This month’s Eyes on Main Street Gallery on Goldsboro Street will present a retrospective of four years of youth programs.

The exhibit will be a large retrospective and will fill two spaces of the gallery.

The show will run May 1-29. Gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays.

EOMS has worked with more than 300 Wilson youths to create a very extensive portfolio.

Staff worked with after school programs and schools around the county: The SPOT, Save-a-Youth, The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, Hearne Elementary School, Integrity Unlimited, Diversified Opportunities, Sallie B. Howard School of Arts and Science, Vick Elementary School and the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf. The students walked around Wilson taking photos under the guidance of skilled photographers.

The program has been supported by large grants, mainly from The Diane Dammeyer Initiative working with Columbia College Chicago, and all the equipment was on loan from Canon USA.

This program is run by Peter Fitzpatrick, EOMS education director, and his team of docents and photographers.

The exhibit will conclude the sixth edition of Eyes on Main Street. The main outdoor exhibition will come down on May 15.
