The University of Tennessee at Martin Department of Visual and Theatre Arts is sponsoring the eighth annual High School Art Exhibition through Friday in the Student Life Center on the UT Martin campus.
More than 100 creative young artists, representing high schools from all over northwest Tennessee, will display art that is the “latest in what is greatest” presented for the UT Martin campus and community.
High school student artwork will be juried by the visual and theatre arts faculty with Best of Show and first, second and third-place awards presented in four major categories. Awards will be announced Friday during the Department of Visual and Theatre Arts sixth annual College Art Day celebration.
Students from the following schools are among exhibition participants: Gibson County High School, Obion County Central High School, University School of Jackson, Chester County High School and Martin Westview High School.
College Art Day is a popular student outreach sponsored by visual and theatre arts featuring art workshops, food and fun for the benefit of area high school students interested in the visual arts. More than 130 students participated last year from various high schools throughout northwest Tennessee.
