Middle School Art Reception

NOTE:  a special thanks to everyone who attended the Middle School Reception.  It was a great success, and we appreciate your support.  It is our hope that we can extend the receptions to include more schools next year.

This year, the UA Arts Commission is reviving a tradition.

In March, the Concourse Gallery will be displaying artwork from all Upper Arlington Middle Schools.  We would like to invite everyone in the community to a reception on Sunday, March 6 from 1-3 pm.  Please stop in to see the pieces by these talented students, and enjoy refreshments from Cheryl’s Cookies, Tin Bakery and the Goodie Shop.

The UA Elementary School art is up in the Concourse Gallery at the Municipal building.  We think you’ll be amazed at the talented students in our community.  Please stop by and take a look, and tag us with your picture on Twitter @UArthere and Instagram #UArthere.  To make it even more fun, we’ve put together a collage that you and your family can use as a scavenger hunt while you enjoy the show.  Below are close ups of some of the art.  See if you can find the full size pieces in the gallery.
