"Arts Alive" is the theme of the annual student art exhibit, March 1-31, in the Art Gallery at Penn State New Kensington.

The show is sponsored by the Alle-Kiski Arts Consortium, a group of local educators dedicated to bringing performing and visual artists to area students. Artwork by high school students from six area school districts -- Allegheny Valley, Burrell, Deer Lakes, Highlands, Kiski Area and New Kensington-Arnold -- is featured in the show. More than 500 two- and three-dimensional pieces include paintings, drawings, sculpture and jewelry.

Art submitted for the show must be produced within students' schools, not outside of class. A reception for the artists is set from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 7, in the art gallery. The exhibit and reception are free to the public.

The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. weekends.
