Student art on display at CAH

LEWISTON, Idaho – The artistic works of LCSC and area junior and senior high school students are being featured at the LCSC Center for Arts & History’s 2014 LCSC and Regional Junior & Senior High School Student Art Exhibition through April 5.

The LCSC Student Exhibition features the work of LCSC students working under the direction of Professor Ray Esparsen and Instructor Aaron Johnson, and includes oil paintings and mixed media drawings created during classes in fine arts. The Regional Junior & Senior High School Student Art Exhibition includes metal sculpture, wood pieces, digital photography, scratchboard, oils, pastels, watercolor, mixed media, and much more from area schools.

The Center for Arts and History is not only a proponent of critical and creative thinking, but an outlet for artistic potential. These young emerging artists, returning adult students, and first-time college students are engaged in understanding not only the physical aspects of painting and drawing, but also using their minds to engage in both discussion and the art making process. Learning to think differently and problem solve through change is an important and thoughtful exploration.

The 2014 LCSC and Regional Junior & Senior High School Student Art Exhibition is brought to the Center for Arts & History by sponsorship from Bill & Roena Mannschreck, LCSC Student Services, Lewis Clark Valley Kiwanis, and through grants from US Bancorp, the Idaho Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The gallery is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Docent tours of the exhibit can be scheduled by calling the Gallery at 208.792.2243,

For more information about the exhibition, visit CAH or call 208.792.2243.
