PASCO, WA - Hundreds of local high school art students will be recognized Wednesday evening for their work, during the 41st Regional High School Art Awards.
Nearly 600 pieces of art, from students in the Educational Services District 123 are on display inside the Gjerde Center at Columbia Basin College in Pasco.
The exhibit features all original pieces including jewelry, sculptures and paintings. The district will name the top winners, during the regional awards ceremony, who will go on to compete in the state competition in Olympia next month.
"They do a wonderful job," said Lori Ballard, the exhibit coordinator. "It's really amazing every year to see what types of things they bring in and I just think if people came out and looked at it, they would be really surprised at the talent of artists we have in our area," added Ballard.
If you would like to check out the student artwork in person, it will be on display at the Gjerde Center until Friday.
