This past Sunday, February 10, marked the Second Annual Elementary Art Exhibit in the Anna Bier Gallery. There were nearly 50 entries submitted collectively by Greenville, Versailles, St. Mary’s, DeColores Montessori and the Homeschool Community. The open house took place on Sunday between 12-2pm with the award ceremony held at 1pm. The exhibit reflected the works of children between Kindergarten and Sixth grades and their work did not disappoint. It was such a beautiful display of creative talent across the board and despite the weather, parents, teachers and patrons came out and filled the gallery with overwhelming support. We would like to encourage all Darke County schools to participate in the future as this has been a wonderful platform for young artists to express their creativity and share their work with our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to put on such a wonderful exhibit and would like to offer a special thank you to the Darke County Foundation, the Ketrow Foundation and all of our gallery members for their continued support.

The gallery invited two outside judges to take on the difficult task of award placement for each grade.
