The high school juried art show has opened at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art. Bethel High School and North Rock Creek High School students are among those with entries.

The MGMoA High School Juried Art Exhibition is now open to the public for viewing.

Over 41 students were accepted with over 70 pieces of art displayed. Students were accepted from Bethel High School, Harrah High School, Mount Saint Mary’s High School, and North Rock Creek High School.

The MGMoA is also bringing in a guest artist to judge the artwork, which will lead to four students winning third, second, first, and best of show ribbons with cash prizes. The prizes are sponsored by Shawnee Lions Club.

“I am very impressed with all the work these students are creating. They are all very skilled and we are very happy to exhibit all their work this spring,” says Manager of Education and Outreach Amber DuBoise-Shepherd.

The MGMoA would like to congratulate the students.
