A Celebration of Young Artists

Art by students from ages 4 to 18 will be featured in the May exhibit at the Whitewater Arts Alliance's Cultural Arts Center on 402 West Main Street. The show opens on Thursday, May 4 and runs through Sunday, May 28 and will be accessible Thursdays through Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. during those dates. A reception for the students will be Sunday, May 7 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and it will feature the Lincoln Elementary School's World Drumming Ensemble at 2:30 p.m. The show and reception are free and open to the public.

The exhibit will include a variety of two and three dimensional artwork by students from area schools. The art teachers displaying their students' art are: Paula Nees from Head Start; Ann Lamb, Christie Matteson, Gigi VanAcker and Jen Clarke from the 4K programs; Joan Schlough of LINCS Inquiry Charter School; Sara Brautigam of Lakeview Elementary School; Mareta Hale of Washington Elementary School; Jim Batiste of the Whitewater Middle School, and Debbie Brigham-Schmuhl of the Whitewater High School. Christine Hayes will bring the Lincoln Elementary School World Drumming Ensemble.

"We are so excited to have the Whitewater students exhibit their talents in our gallery again," said WAA volunteer Linda Long. "It is so fun to see the progress from those first projects in elementary school and the later work in middle and high school. The other aspect that we love about this show is that it often brings visitors to the CAC who have not visited with us before, and expanding our visitor list is one of our goals during this, our 10th Anniversary at the CAC."

Linda also would like to encourage folks to attend the World's Largest Potluck on May 7. She adds, "Make it a great day and stop by the World's Largest Potluck for lunch and then come on over to the CAC to enjoy great art and music."
