ART ON DISPLAY: After a two-year Covid hiatus, the Vale High School Student Art Show is returning this April.

Students enrolled in art classes at the high school are submitting their best works of the 2021-22 school year for the exhibit.

Some 75 artworks will be on display April 1-22 at Vale City Hall, 150 Longfellow St. N, with an open house and awards ceremony set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5.

“As we know, VHS students are incredible athletes, auto technicians, ag enthusiasts and robotic masterminds – but we also have some massively talented, creative and artistic students,” said Kacie Shaffer, fine arts teacher.

The art students’ works will vie for Best of Show, grade-level honors and other awards. The latter include awards in honor of Lee McBride, an avid supporter of the arts, and Billie Frost, longtime arts teacher at Vale High.

The community is invited to attend the awards ceremony and to view the exhibit during regular business hours at City Hall.
