Vote for your favorite student art in March

BRATTLEBORO — The Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is celebrating 38 years of Student Arts Month, which takes place during the month of March. Throughout the years, it has celebrated blossoming young artists in Windham County while recognizing the teachers and school infrastructures that help these students to flourish. ACWC has partnered with venues, schools, and teachers to arrange activities featuring the work of young artists throughout Windham County.

Between eight and 10 county high schools participate in Student Art Month, as well as many elementary and middle schools and there are approximately 300 pieces of art entered in the high school art show alone. Festivities always begin with the opening of the High School Visual Art Show during the March Gallery Walk. This year the 2D works will be hung at the River Garden Gallery, including photography, and the 3D works will be at the Vermont Artisans Gallery 2 on the second floor on Main Street. Elementary School Art Exhibit will be at the Brooks Memorial Library and on display during March.

The shows will open at 5:30 p.m., on Friday, to coincide with Gallery Walk. Once again, the public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite pieces in the "People's Choice Awards" as the show continues throughout the month. This year's winners will be interviewed for a television spot on "Art Story," the Arts Council's BCTV show that features local artists.
