Some young artists throughout Greenbrier County are having their masterpieces on display at a historic place known for such creations.
The artwork of more than 130 students from 15 schools were put up Wednesday afternoon at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg, as part of its annual Creative Youth Art Exhibit. There, judges picked winners across the elementary, middle, and high school divisions. Each division had a top dog in painting, drawing, and mixed media, which uses a combination of different elements for the project.
Carnegie’s Education Director, Leah Trent, said she believes the art is awe-inspiring. Yet, the exhibit is not necessarily for those learning in the classroom studio, but for those who run it.
“It’s mainly a tribute to the art teachers that we have in this county,” Trent said. “Art teachers are excellent and they encourage the students. They guide them along the way.”
The winners will be announced at Carnegie’s auditorium on Thursday, March 7. The ceremony and reception afterwards are free and open to the public.
The artwork will be on display through March 22.
