Lanesboro Arts will present the Annual Juried High School Art Show, showcasing work by 9-12th grade students from Chatfield, Fillmore Central, Lanesboro, and Rushford-Peterson High Schools. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, January 10 from 6-8 p.m., which is a good chance to meet student artists and teachers from these schools. The show runs through January 31, 2015.

The show features a variety of art projects, including those in ceramics, acrylics, pastels, ink, pencil, and mixed media sculpture.
