BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
The reception for the 28th annual High School Art Competition will be held at Mena Art Gallery, 607 Mena Street, on Saturday, April 11, from 1 to 3 pm. Admission is free; awards will be announced at 2:00 pm.
As they have for the past several years, Jeremy and Quincy Thornton of Mena Title Company have generously funded the awards for this show. We very much appreciate their support.
The high school years are an exciting time for developing artists: they still retain the unfettered imagination of the younger children but begin to have the skill to put their ideas into practice. I look forward each year to seeing what surprises (and there always are some!) they have in store for us.
Please plan to come and lend your support to the next generation of artists, get to know them, and enjoy their talented work.
