LEWISTON, Idaho – The Lewis-Clark State College Student Exhibition and Regional Junior & Senior High Student Art Exhibition, along with the Stephen Lyman Memorial Children’s Art Exhibit, will be on display during April at the LCSC Center for Arts & History, located at 415 Main Street in Lewiston.

The exhibits, which are part of the annual Dogwood Festival, run April 1-29. An artist reception will take place on April 13 at 4:30 p.m. at the Center.

The LCSC Student Exhibition features the work of LCSC students with artwork created during classes in fine arts with professor Ray Esparsen and watercolor students of instructor Aaron Johnson.
