This week, the Indian Trail Town Hall will be adorned with artwork from local elementary school students.
The Student Art Showcase will be open to residents on Thursday and Friday, March 12 and 13, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., and on Saturday, March 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. A VIP reception will be held for the artists and their families on Wednesday, March 11, before the exhibit opens to the public on Thursday.
Each elementary school was invited to submit 15 pieces of student artwork, giving local art students the opportunity to exhibit their work for all in the community to enjoy. This year’s participating schools are Antioch, Hemby Bridge, Indian Trail, Poplin, Porter Ridge, Sardis, and Stallings elementaries, Shiloh Valley Primary School, as well as Metrolina Christian and Union Preparatory academies.
The Student Art Showcase was one of the programs developed for the Educate Through Art Initiative, and the first exhibit was held in March 2013. The Town chose March in recognition of National Student Art Month. The first year, only five elementary schools participated. The event has grown to include 10 schools and approximately 175 students.
“We have so many talented student artists in the Indian Trail area,” said Susan Didier, Indian Trail Arts & Culture Program Coordinator. “We are honored to host this exhibit to showcase their work each year. We looked forward to welcoming the students, their teachers, and their families to Town Hall.”
Town Hall is located at 315 Matthews-Indian Trail Road.
