Exhibit features young artists

‘Young at Art’ opens in Ketchum

Express Staff Writer

One of the major fundraisers for The Education Foundation of the Blaine County School District is "Young at Art." This exhibition of Blaine County School student art opens with a private party Thursday, May 20, at the Sun Valley Center for Arts in Ketchum.

Organizer and foundation board member Kathleen Mardian said the foundation has "invited guests who’re people we think would like to get involved."

There will be a silent auction for rocking chairs made by Education Foundation board member Sharon Payne and painted by valley artists, such as Payne, Mardian, Tisa McCombs and Diana Fassino.

The exhibit features art work by 160 Blaine County public school students from each of the seven schools in the district: Silver Creek Alternative School, Carey School, Wood River High School, Wood River Middle School, Bellevue Elementary, Hailey Elementary and Hemingway Elementary. The art teachers at each of the schools chose the artwork to be included.

"We have just great artwork coming out of Carey," Mardian noted.

Special calendars have been created and are for sale with some of the featured pieces. These include the Blaine County School District month by month calendar of events. Just imagine: Parents and kids no longer have to wonder when spring break is.

The exhibit stays up through Wednesday, May 25, and can be seen during regular gallery hours. Also, Friday, May 21, the gallery will be open until 9 p.m.

All proceeds benefit the Education Foundation’s ongoing excellence in education awards. The not-for-profit organization was formed by interested and pro-active parents in 1992. Donations come from individuals, businesses, and private and public foundations. Each year the Foundation gives grants to educators for everything from computers to art supplies to self-esteem building programs, Dual Immersion literature and science lab supplies.
