Tamarack is showcasing student talent in one of its art exhibits. The exhibit opened earlier in April and runs through the beginning of May. People can view the Youth Arts in the Parks 2019 exhibit starting at 7 p.m. every night.

All grades of students from surrounding counties were asked to create a piece of art inspired by a wildflower. Visual and Performing Arts Assistant Manager, Alice Yurick, said students were judged and the top five best pieces of artwork were put on sale for people to purchase. 

“It’s something that they can use to really learn about the world around them, especially because they’re learning and they’re actually judged on how well a depiction of a flower it is, so is that supposed to have three petals? Yes it does, check. So they’re learning biology and there’s some science aspects of it too,” Yurick said. 

One of the five pieces was recently sold and the others remain for sale in the gallery.
