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. Always free and open to the public, winter gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. in January. The show features a variety of art projects, including those in ceramics, acrylics, pastels, ink, pencil, and mixed media sculpture.

The exhibit is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Providing year-round arts programming for more than thirty years, the mission of Lanesboro Arts is to serve as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. For more information: www.lanesboroarts.org / (507)467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org. Handicapped accessible and free to the public, the exhibition gallery is located at 103 Parkway Ave N. in Lanesboro, Minnesota.
