PUNGO — The Tar Roof, a recent addition to Pungo’s “downtown,” hosted a senior display for the the advanced placement studio art students at Kellam High School this past month.

Some of the work remained up through the Pungo Strawberry Festival.

The day before the opening, students worked with teachers Laura Peters of Red Mill and Alison Napier of Chesapeake, as well as the owners of The Tar Roof.

These photos are from that collaboration.
