Feb. 26 – K-12 Art Exhibit at Ferndale Library

Ferndale, MI – The Ferndale Library invites the community to celebrate the burgeoning talent of young student artists of all grade levels when they host a reception for their latest exhibition on Wed., February 26 at 6 pm. Youth Services Librarians have collaborated with Ferndale Public Schools art teachers to curate a variety of pieces created by K-12 students over the last year or so, to be put on display in the library’s main events room for a month-long exhibition.

“We thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to showcase some amazing student art for the public to see,” said Jordan Wright, Head Librarian of Youth Services. “But this won’t be a juried competition or anything; we just wanted to host a reception for parents, teachers, family, and friends to view the students’ art.”

The Ferndale Library formed its very own Art & Exhibitions Committee in 2013, which has consistently curated works from established local artists throughout the years. But this new exhibition was a direct cooperative effort between librarians and teachers, albeit with strong support and encouragement from the Art & Exhibitions Committee.

A reception for the students’ work will be hosted in the library’s main events space, with refreshments and music. Parents, teachers, and friends are all cordially invited, along with the encouraged attendance of all members of the local arts scene, from gallery directors, to college professors, to established visual artists–it’s an opportunity to cheer on the next generation of great artists.
