LANESBORO, Minn. (FOX 47) – Several area high schools gathered in Lanesboro to show off their artistic skills.
The annual Juried High School art show showcases the creations of 9th-12th graders from Chatfield, Fillmore Central, Lanesboro and Rushford-Peterson.
From Saturday until February 2nd, student artwork will be on display at the Lanesboro Arts building and is free to the public.
High School teachers and Galley directors say it’s important to be able to provide this opportunity for kids that otherwise never would.
“It’s pretty wonderful for the kids to put themselves out there and to show what they’ve made and not be afraid is one of the wonderful benefits of this show. It’s so important that people understand the benefits of the arts and getting to know your inner-self. In a rural community, very often kids don’t have the opportunity to be exposed to the arts,” said Robbie Brokken, Lanesboro Arts Gallery Director.
The art show features projects based in ceramics, acrylics, pastels and mixed media sculptures.
