Juried Art Show Final Presentations

A semester's worth of work culminated today in the Arts Track.  Students presented their personal art projects in a local gallery after learning about art installation.  The Track was fortunate to have the exhibition sponsored by The Pend Oreille Arts Council (POAC). The official public opening of the exhibition will be Friday, January 15th, 2016, from 5:30-7:00 at the Columbia Bank Plaza on the corner of Third and Oak in Sandpoint.  The public is welcome to attend.  The Arts Track installation will be available for public viewing until March 21, 2016.  Students did an amazing job presenting their artwork, and they appreciate all of the community support!  Please stop by the Plaza during business hours and experience the artwork for yourself!
