Spotlight: Red Wing Depot
Red Wing Arts is celebrating young talent and creativity now through April 8. Student artwork from four Red Wing schools went on display March 3.
An annual tradition since 1993, this year features artworks in colored pencil, ceramics and graphite among other mediums.
"I can say that we really appreciate and look forward to this show every year because for our art students, this is a 'game day' where they have the opportunity to be recognized by their community for sharing their talents, hard work, and passion in the fine arts," Red Wing High School art specialist Kristen Bray said.
Nearly 100 artworks by students from Burnside and Sunnyside in kindergarten and grade 4, Twin Bluff Middle School (grades 5-7) and Red Wing High School are being showcased in the special exhibition.
"This is one of our most colorful exhibits of the year. I, along with our gallery visitors are intrigued and inspired by the imaginative work created by our very own community of young artists," said Lacy Schumann, Red Wing Arts Artistic operations director.
The community is invited to visit the Red Wing Student Art Show and attend a free grand opening reception for students and their families on Saturday, March 17. The times are 10-11 a.m. for Burnside/Sunnyside; 11 to noon for Twin Bluff, and noon to 1 p.m. for Red Wing High School.
