DANVILLE — Three Danville art students have been selected to show their work in regional and state venues.
Cheyanne Owrey has a piece of art that was accepted into the governor’s exhibition in Columbus. Her work is one of 25 that will be displayed at the Department of Education. Unfortunately, it is not open to the public.
Alexandra Howell and Kyla Brayshaw had work the was chosen at the regional level, but not state. Their work will be shown at the Mansfield Art Center. The opening for that show is Saturday, from 3-5 p.m., and the show continues through April 16.
Art instructor Janet Marsano said the jurying begins at the regional level in which there are about 11,000 entries from 15 regions. This first judging process reduces the number of works to about 2,500 pieces that are then judged at the state level. Of those, 300 are displayed at the Rhodes State Office Tower. Twenty-five more are displayed at the Department of Education and 25 more at the Office of the Governor.
