Arkansas Young Artists exhibit at Bradley County museum

artThe Bradley County Historical Museum and the GFWC Warren Woman’s Club will host the Arkansas Arts Center’s “Young Arkansas Artists” Exhibit at the museum beginning this month.

The exhibit includes the art of young artists who won the Young Arkansas Artists competition which is open to Arkansas students from kindergarten through 12th grade and is held each year to showcase Arkansas’ talented young people. The winning art works are included in a traveling art exhibit that travels the state the following year.

Annually, since 2008, the Bradley County Historical Museum and the Warren Woman’s Club have participated in presenting this exhibit to hundreds of area students. The exhibit has been well received by local and surrounding area educators. Art teachers enthusiastically endorse the program and use the works to help teach interpretation and techniques to the local art students.

This year, the show features art work by two area students, Kelby Robertson and Laura Sawyer. Robertson is a 3rd grade student from Warren. He is the son of Cody and Jana Robertson of Warren. Sawyer is a 12th grade student from Woodlawn. She is the daughter of Eldon and Retha Sawyer.

The exhibit is open to any group in Southeast Arkansas. Area educators are encouraged to schedule a visit for their students to view the exhibit. To schedule a visit, call 870-226-5457, 870-226-2777 or 870-820-7690.
