  • Montgomery, Ala. – On Friday, April 29, at 1:00 p.m., ninety-five (95) students from across the state will be invited onstage at the State Capitol auditorium to receive an award for their creativity as visual artists. By submitting a painting, drawing, print, mixed media, sculpture, photography or digital art, each of these students won an award in their hometown district. Their work then traveled to Montgomery to be exhibited at the Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery, from April 1-29. The state exhibit will culminate with an award ceremony to honor these exceptional students, their teachers and their schools.
