Annual student art show brings light to dark winter

Friday, Feb. 3 at 5 p.m.—BRANDON—From the quiet of winter emerges much energy and excitement as local youth present the annual student art show at Brandon Artists Guild. It is a very special time for students, their families and the community to see the work displayed in a professional gallery setting. The guild invites the public to come and support art education in area schools by attending the show opening Friday, Feb. 3, 5-7 p.m. The show will hang through Feb. 28.
Student work is from Barstow Memorial School, Leicester Central School, Lothrop Elementary School, Neshobe School, Otter Valley High School and Middle School, Proctor Elementary School, Sudbury Country School, and Whiting Elementary School. It covers a large assortment of media and shows the quality of the art education in our schools.
The Brandon Artists Guild is a big supporter of art education, and contributes generously through community art projects and auctions. Most recently “An Artful Journey,” a series of art workshops for children and adults taught by the Brandon Artists Guild members and local teachers, provided revenue for the schools.
The Brandon Artists Guild is located at 7 Center Street, Brandon. Winter hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more info, call 802-247-4956 or visit
