Brightly colored paintings and drawings created by Sumner County elementary students are part of a new exhibit at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville.
The inaugural Sumner County Schools Art Show opened Saturday, Dec. 10 with a reception honoring local students chosen to be a part of the exhibit. The event recognized students from 20 Sumner County schools.
The exhibit showcases work created by more than 200 young artists from kindergarten through grade 12. Local elementary and middle school art teachers selected two works per grade level, and high school art teachers selected two works from each art course offered at their schools.
Sumner County schools represented in the exhibit include Benny Bills, William Burrus, George Whitten, Guild, Howard, Indian Lake, J.W. Wiseman, Lakeside Park, Madison Creek, Millersville, Nannie Berry, North Sumner, Portland Gateview, Station Camp, and Vena Stuart elementary schools.
Portland West, Robert Ellis, Rucker-Stewart, and Station Camp middle schools and Gallatin High School are also represented.
Worthington Galleries congratulates these young artists on their success.
The exhibit is on display now through Jan. 2 at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, 919 Broadway, Nashville, Tenn. Visit fristcenter.org for hours of operation.
