FREMONT – Some talented artists from the Fremont Public School system are enjoying their debut this week in the one of the galleries at the Fremont Area Art Association.
Creative works from the K-12 art students will be on display at the Fremont Area Art Assocation throughout March in celebration of Youth Art Month. This annual celebration emphasizes the value of art education programs in our public schools. The visual arts help students learn to become better problem solvers, increases observation and communication skills, and gives students a creative outlet.
Sunday afternoon, the public was invited to tour the multi-media exhibit, and Fremont Area Art Assocation’s executive director, Barb Gerhringer, says the turnout was excellent. “There’s probably about 500 pieces of art here, and we had easily 250 people coming in to check out what was going on at the gallery.”
“This is probably he biggest show we’ve ever had and the quality of artwork is really spectacular.”
These works will be on display through the end of March at 92 W 6th St in Fremont, and the public is welcome to stop by Tuesdays through Sundays, 1PM – 4PM.
