The annual art show is a celebration of Youth Art Month, an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs. The show is organized by Herkimer County Art Circles, a professional development group of art educators from area schools.

Students and their teachers will be honored at the March 20 opening reception, which will also feature citations and proclamations from area elected officials. The reception will run from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., with certificates presented beginning at 6.
