Event has passed

    WASHINGTON — The Gibbs Library presents an exhibit of works of art by six area art educators called Art Teacher As Creator.

    “This is a special show, as it reflects the artistic expression of the professionals who give our children opportunity, encouragement, and guidance in their own creative outpourings,” said Gibbs, in a news release.” Art teachers introduce materials, techniques, and structure, but even more, they inspire students to experience creativity as an exploration and to convey meaning through objects and images.”

    The show will run through the months of March and April.

    “Please take time to stop by and read the statements of each teacher and appreciate their own artwork and the inspiration they offer to our children and community,” said the release.

    A reception will be held on Monday, April 3, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
