March First Friday - Student Arts Expo
The Guild hosts the annual Student Arts Expo
Friday, February 6, 2015
The Creative Arts Guild’s First Friday Exhibit Opening and Artist Reception for the month of March will feature the 52nd Annual Student Arts Expo. March is Arts In Education Month at the Guild and the expo a big part of the celebration.
All students pre-K through 12th grade in Dalton, Murray and Whitfield counties and private and homeschool students were invited to exhibit their art. First, second, third and honorable mention place ribbons will be awarded in each grade level. Awards are made based on the student’s ability to use the materials, an understanding of art history or the student’s place in his/her world and innovative individual expression.
In addition, the Creative Arts Guild and the O.N. Jonas Foundation sponsor an arts competition for collaborative classroom projects. The winning classroom in each division will receive a cash prize to be used for artist in residence fees, art supplies or other classroom art activity resources during the school year.
Each year, one high school senior is selected to receive the coveted Bernice Spigel Prize in Visual Arts, which includes a cash prize and an offer to present a solo exhibition in the Guild’s Gallery 111 with a shared First Friday opening reception for April.
