. . . but you can read all about it in this week’s Parsons Advocate (May 4, 2011). The STArt 2011 Student Art Show and Reception at the Davis Community Center on Sunday, May 1, featured 130 art works by over 100 students from all the Tucker County Public Schools, grades K – 12. Here are some highlights of the Show.
Twenty-seven prizes were awarded: Best of Show, Business Award, Town of Davis Award, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 3 Honorable Mentions in each of four grade divisions (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12). All the prize-winners are listed in theAdvocate article. Here are pictures of some.
Art teachers Linda Moser, Amy Goughnour, and Thisbe Cooper stressed that all the student works exhibited had to go through a rigorous selection process in each school in order to be included in the Show. They are proud of all their young artists, and expressed appreciation for the large crowd that turned out to view the Show.
If you missed the Show, you have a second chance to see the student art works, which have been distributed around Tucker County to be on exhibit in the following businesses. Look for the green sign that says “We’re Participating” and you’ll find 2 to 6 pieces at each location.
