The Dawson County High School Visual Arts program will be holding its 2019 Spring Art Show this month.

Unlike the program’s part shows, this show is a spotlight show for students that participated in a digital portfolio review.

Gold Spotlight students were chosen based on their portfolio scores and dedication shown in class.

The show is also interactive, with spotlight students creating a digital portfolio art show attendees can access online via QR codes placed beside the student’s work.

The Spotlight Show will run from May 6 to 10 in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center at Dawson County High School. It is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The spotlight students in the show are: Madison Britt, Malorie Cramer, Matthew Elber, Samantha Garcia, Emily LaBalle, Marlene Espinoza-Manriquez, Fatima Patino-Ramirez, Nathan Ryan, Marissa Seabolt, Lindsey Blackstock, Emily Bouchez, Dreams Brown, McKale Edwards, Ellie Harper, Addison Hoard, Elizabeth Keys, Robyn Mohr, Kobe Rea, Sarah Roland, Celine Sapp, Kenzie Smith, Josie Stamey and Amberleigh Terry.

Artworks will be judged from 5 to 7 p.m. May 7. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. May 10, with an awards ceremony taking place at 6 p.m.

The show and reception is free for the community.

The Performing Arts Center is at 1665 Perimeter Road in Dawsonville.
