Whitman-Hanson Regional High School art student Connor Gouthro featured in a showcase for seniors

For immediate release

WHITMAN — Superintendent Jeffrey Szymaniak and Whitman-Hanson Regional High School art teacher Christina Maher are pleased to announce that Senior Connor Gouthro is exhibiting his work in a special exhibit.

Beginning Friday, March 25, Gouthro’s work will be featured in three showcases in the Art Department. The show will end on April 8.

“We are incredibly proud of Connor’s dedication and passion for the art,” said Maher. “The art featured shows diligent creativity and I look forward to the work this incredibly talented student artist will create in the future.”

Gouthro has been an active member of the school’s arts community and participated in the “Inspired I” art program last year.

Gouthro has also been an active member of the WHHRS Art in Action Club for four years and has created three portraits for The Memory Project, which connects American art students with orphans and refugees in foreign countries by creating portraits of those children who have often had to leave all their childhood photographs and other worldly possessions behind (including Cameroon in 2022, Afghanistan in 2021, and Pakistan in 2020).

“Art has led me to meet and befriend people I never thought I would talk to and a great community of people who changed my life for the better,” Gouthro said. “It’s always been something I can sit back and focus on while keeping my mind and skills sharp.”

Connor’s art can also be accessed virtually here.
