Talented young artists across the county are coming together once again to display their artwork for the community.

The Dawson County Visual Arts Programs have worked hard all year and the students are ready to have their paintings, sculptures, drawings and more showcased at the third annual “Visual Expressions” art show.

This year’s theme challenged Dawson County art students to create comic and pop art pieces inspired by the styles of famed artists Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.

Art from all Dawson County elementary schools, the middle, junior and high schools will be featured. Each school will have approximately 25-35 two dimensional pieces and 25-35 three dimensional pieces on display.

The show will be staffed by students including Amelia Gorski directing with Katie Goodwin assisting. General staff for the show includes: Logan Connell, Savannah Kennedy, Rachel Rajczak, Hope Bennett, Karley Thurmond, Reed Glaze, Kelton Moss, Ashley Stanfill and Meagan Sloane.

Artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Dawson County Performing Arts Center 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 19-23. A reception will be held at 5 p.m. Feb. 22 where award winners will be announced. The art show is free and all are welcome to attend. The Performing Arts Center is located at Dawson County High School at 1665 Perimeter Road.
