In response to the query, “Where can we see local student artwork?” the Asheville City Schools Youth Art Month exhibit will open on Sunday, May 3, and run through Thursday, May 14.
For the second consecutive year, we are using the historic YMI Cultural Center on Market Street. Every Asheville City School will be represented, from kindergarten through high school seniors. We have found the center to be an ideal place to showcase art, as well as an opportunity to highlight the venue itself. Anyone interested in seeing student work might wish to check their website for specific hours.
My own students’ work is regularly exhibited at the State Employees Credit Union on Broadway and the downtown branch on Charlotte Street. I am passionate about displaying my students’ works. As a young artist, I still remember seeing my own work on display and the impact it had on my life’s course.
Local businesses that would like to brighten their walls with student art should contact any area art teacher. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
