Young artists display their work

This annual event is organized by area art teachers and features artwork from talented K-12 students in all media. “This is such a good opportunity for our community to enjoy our budding artist,” said Emily Lanctot, museum director. “It is just a joy being able to experience all the art. It’s like walking into a room of confetti.” This exhibition runs through May 26. At right, the Cittadino family admire the various items on display.
