The third annual countywide art show can be described in one word: amazing. At the show’s reception Thursday evening, proud artists and their families came out in abundance to view hundreds of art pieces on display in the lobby of the Dawson County Performing Arts Center. “I think it’s awesome,” said Kelly Shippey, the art teacher at Black’s Mill Elementary. “I think it’s amazing to see the variety and the many different kinds of art. You don’t just see the 2D. You also see the 3D and how the children’s personality comes out in their artwork.” It’s no easy task bringing together artwork from six different schools, but DCHS seniors Mia Gorski and Katie Goodwin were up for the challenge. Beginning in January, Gorski and Goodwin put in a lot of hours to make sure every piece was accounted for and began designing the show.
