Winners for the 20th once-a-year Artwork About Town exhibit have been selected, organizers announce.
The yearly function, which ended Tuesday, highlighted two-dimensional artwork designed by area elementary and middle faculty college students from 11 region school districts.
The exhibit was sponsored by Missouri Point out University-West Plains’ University/Community Packages (U/CP) Department and held in the show hall at the West Plains Civic Centre.
Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the approach for judging the entries this yr was altered marginally, organizers claimed. As an alternative of awarding the top rated a few entries by grade, artists from the location who juried the exhibit selected the top rated three entries from each and every faculty district, organizers explained.
A Very best of Exhibit winner also was picked. That honor went to Keyonna Patterson, a fifth-quality student at Fairview Faculty, for her watercolor and pen piece.
