Youth art show winners announced; works on display at local gallery

The Weatherford Art Association 2014 Student Art Show is now on display at the Firehouse Art Gallery, 119 Palo Pinto St., through April 6.  

This judged art show features 221 artworks of one home-schooled student and secondary art students from 10 schools representing six local school districts.

Participating schools and art teachers are Diane Bolinger and Melanie Overholt, from Weatherford High School; Paula Ard and Natalie Hansen, from Weatherford Ninth Grade Center; Danny Golighty, from Tison Middle School; Sharon Winters and Stephanie McPherson, from Hall Middle School; Gloria Andrews, from Aledo High School; Arlene Shelton, from Aledo Ninth Grade Center; Sue Brunner, from Brock ISD; Mrs. Sandlin, from Poolville ISD; Shannon Johnson, from Springtown High School; Mikela Moss-Ukena, from Legacy Leadership Academy; and Rosalie Kobetich, home school art teacher.“This is a show we host every year, usually during March as a way to help promote art in Parker County schools.  March is nationally known as Youth Art Month, so this is a timely display,” said Kathy Cunning, vice president of shows for WAA.

Carol Womack and Leigh Ann Williams-Hickey, of the Fort Worth Art Institute, were the show’s judges.

An awards reception for the students, administrators, parents and the public is 6 p.m. on Friday, March 28, at the Firehouse Art Gallery. Call 817-599-3278 for more information.
