"Arts Alive"
March 3-30

Artists' Reception:
5:30-7:30 p.m., Monday, March 12, Art Gallery

"Arts Alive" is the theme of the annual student art exhibit, March 3-30, 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 including paintings, drawings, sculpture and jewelry will be on display. Art submitted for the show must be produced within the students' schools, not outside of class.

A reception for the artists is set from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 12, 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. on the weekends.
