2023 Regional Student Art Show Main Gallery Exhibit
The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is pleased to announce two new exhibits that will be open from Saturday, March 4th through Sunday, March 26th.
The Main Gallery will feature student artwork in the return of the regional student art show. March is national Youth Art Month and the Gmeiner is thrilled to present our local youths’ talent to the community. This year’s Regional Student exhibit was open to any public, private, or homeschooled student from Potter, Tioga, and Bradford counties. Students were allowed to enter up to two pieces in any medium. These could be pieces that they created in school or on their own. Encouraging children to participate in the arts allows them to develop creativity, problem solving skills, observation and communication skills.
On Sunday, March 26th, the final day of the exhibits, there will be a reception from 2-4PM to celebrate all of the artists and their teachers. Light refreshments will be served at the reception, which is free and open to the public.
Masks are optional at the Gmeiner
Masks are currently optional at the Gmeiner. Individuals are still welcome to wear a mask for their own comfort and safety if they choose, and masks are available by the bathrooms.
