Glencoe Mansion, Museum and Gallery is displaying a new art show featuring the works of students from Radford City Public Schools.
The show is open through June 24 with an opening reception scheduled for today, Saturday, May 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The show features the works of students from the second through the twelfth grade representing all four Radford City schools. The students are primarily showcasing work that was created in the classroom where they learned about a variety of art movements, styles, and mediums. Some students also submitted work that was created outside the classroom. Works from McHarg and Belle Heth elementary schools were created under the direction of Michelle Saunders and Ashley Syphrett. Works from Dalton Intermediate School were created under the direction of Kristy Bryant. Works from students at Radford High School were created under the instruction of Savannah Leeman.
“We are so excited to have this dynamic exhibit showcasing the artistic talents of Radford’s youngest citizens,” said museum director Scott Gardner. Gallery coordinator Lauri Murphy said, “Showcasing the works of young artists in a public setting can be so inspiring, both for the artist and the viewer. It is an honor to have this exhibit on display at Glencoe.”
