Monongalia Arts Center: k-12 Exhibit

Children of all ages and parents and teachers alike filled the galleries of the Monongalia Arts Center this past Friday evening. The MAC opened it's K-12 exhibit, celebrating arts in school, featuring artwork from children across the county.

I went with my roommate, Maria, for the opening reception. I had never seen the lobby so crowded! There were so many children there excited to see their artwork on the walls of the MAC.

It is surprising to see how talented kids are from this area. Maria and I would try and guess what grade each artist was in and stood corrected more than half the time.

There were so many colors and creativity in each gallery and in the halls. Plus, it was really fun to see how enthusiastic the children were.

The K-12 Exhibit runs all month. I would definitely recommend checking it out and seeing the work from some young artists.

Here's a taste....
