"Me and My Colors" by Sedalia 3rd grader Patrick Roberts
Graves County District Elementary Schools Exhibit
The Icehouse Gallery kicks off 2017 with an exhibit of works by students from the Graves County Elementary School District. The works will be on display from Thursday, February 9 through Friday, February 24. Represented are Central, Lowes, Sedalia, Farmington, Wingo and Simsonia Elementary Schools. All works will be on sale to the public for $10 each with proceeds going to the Icehouse. This exhibition has been a huge success over the past years; young artists look forward to having their work on display outside the school classrooms and the public gets a chance to see how the students are advancing in their visual arts studies. And the proceeds help to keep the doors open at the Icehouse Gallery. Patrons will be able to take artwork home during the reception that will be held from 6:00pm until 8:00pm on Friday, February 24. The public is cordially invited to attend the reception at the Gallery.
The exhibit and reception are being coordinated by Beth Dillon, Central Elementary Fine Arts Teacher and member of the Art Guild Board of Directors. Sherry Darnall is the art teacher at both Sedalia and Wingo; Brenda Gardner teaches art at Symsonia; Tara Elder teaches art at Lowes; and Beth Mohon teaches at Farmington.
