Art Show Opens Saturday
The creative and artistic abilities of Putnam County students will be on display at the Putnam County Museum for the next few months.
Assistant director Tanis Monday said she is "super excited" about the show, as it is her first.
"It gives the students of Putnam County the chance to display their skills," she added.
The public is invited to view art by public, private or home school children from kindergarten to 12th grade. Each school chose a number of pieces to enter in the show, providing a wide variety of art. There will be an assortment of both 2-D and 3-D artwork on display, including acrylic paint, charcoal, pastel watercolors, ceramic and abstract art.
Monday reported more than 100 families attended last year's show.
"It takes great community effort to support the creative talents of children," she continued.
The second annual Putnam County Student Art show will open at 11 a.m. Saturday with an awards ceremony. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third places in each age division.
New to the museum this year is "Red Rover, Red Rover, Send Everyone Over: Our Past through Play" exhibit. It will not open until early April and is for all ages. More information will follow at a later date.
The mission of the Putnam County Museum is to collect, preserve and interpret the natural, historical and cultural heritage and life of the county and to benefit the community through education, exhibits and special programs.
