Opening Reception: Friday, March 2 ~ 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Each year, the Community Arts Center partners with the Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County and art teachers from throughout Boyle County to showcase artwork by hundreds of local students.
This year, for the first time, the Student Showcase exhibit will also include artwork by Centre College art students. The Centre College show will be housed in the Grand Hall on the first floor of the Arts Center. Creative Director Brandon Long says he is excited to include work by the college students in the exhibit. “This is a great opportunity for the community to see the amazing work they’ve been creating just a few blocks away from the Arts Center. It also gives the school children in the Youth Art Fair upstairs a chance to see the promise of what lies ahead if they continue to pursue the path of being an artist.”
The second floor of the Arts Center will feature the Youth Art Fair. Since 2002, the Arts Commission has coordinated this opportunity for local students to exhibit their work to the community. Originally held in Millennium Park, then in local school gyms or foyers, and now at the Community Arts Center, the Youth Art Fair continues to attract hundreds of school-aged participants and even more spectators. The Boyle County 4-H Council supports the Youth Art Fair by providing materials to students in both the Danville and Boyle County school districts.
The Student Showcase is made possible by the amazing efforts of:
The Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County
Boyle County 4-H Council
Boyle County Schools
Danville Christian Academy
Danville Independent School District
Kentucky School for the Deaf
