Artwork from top high school student artists from around the state of North Carolina will be on display at the Anson County Arts Council’s gallery during the month of December.

This display of artwork is part of the North Carolina National Art Honor Society Traveling Exhibit which has been, and will continue to be, on display throughout the state of North Carolina for the 2016-17 school year.

The traveling display consists of 36 pieces of artwork selected from National Art Honor Society students at various high schools throughout the state, including four pieces from Anson High School students. Local students Amani Kahlid, Jada Lindsey, My Vue and Katerina Lee were each honored with a selection for the traveling exhibit. Nicole Sikes is the Anson NAHS sponsor and the art teacher for these students.

Artwork from the traveling exhibit can be viewed at the Anson County Arts Council gallery throughout the month of December during regular gallery hours and at other times by appointment. Gallery hours are typically 1-4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, although hours may be adjusted through the holidays. Guests are welcome to drop by or call the Arts Council office at 704-694-4950.

The exhibit is currently on display at the University of North Carolina at Asheville through the month of November prior to its arrival in Anson County in December. After being on display in Anson, the traveling exhibit will move to Meredith College in Raleigh for the month of January, and will continue at various points in the state for the remainder of the year.

The gallery is located on South Rutherford Street in Wadesboro beside the Ansonia Theatre.
