LCSC and local high school students' work featured in exhibition at Center for Arts & History

LEWISTON, Idaho - LCSC Center for Arts & History presents the 2015 LCSC and Regional Junior & Senior High Student Art Exhibition.  The exhibits will open to the public on Friday, March 6, with the opening reception from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m.  The exhibits run through Saturday, March 28.

The LCSC Student Exhibition features the work of LCSC students working under the direction of Professor Ray Esparsen, with oil paintings and graphite drawings created during classes in Fine Arts.  The Regional Junior & Senior High School Student Art Exhibition includes digital photography, printmaking, oils, charcoal, pastels, watercolor, mixed media, and much more from area schools.

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.  We encourage everyone to join us in welcoming so many talented young (and a few older) beginning artists and the exhibition of their works.

The 2015 LCSC and Regional Junior & Senior High School Student Art Exhibition is brought to LCSC Center for Arts & History by sponsorship from Bill & Roena Mannschreck, LCSC Student Affairs,  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,
