Frankfort, Michigan. Elizabeth Lane Oliver Center for the Arts’ Regional Student Exhibition is an annual favorite in the community. High School works are juried by special guest artists for display in the Beck Gallery, and area elementary and middle school works are accepted for display in the Borwell and Entrance Galleries.
Last year saw the exhibition’s highest number of participants from area schools including Frankfort-Elberta, Benzie Central, Interlochen, Mesick, and Traverse City. Over 140 pieces were on display and last year’s jurors were thoroughly impressed with the level of excellence. ‘The exhibition is a great way to get students and the community involved in the Art Center and has been a favorite exhibition for years. We are looking forward to seeing the fantastic art being submitted this year,’ said Steve Brown, Executive Director.
Jurors for this year are Jason Dake, Curator of Education at The Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City, and Peg McCarty, Executive Director of Glen Arbor Art Association.
Certificates of Excellence will be presented during the Exhibition Opening on Friday, April 17 from 5pm-7pm. The Exhibition runs from April 17 until May 18.
