March 2, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. will mark the opening reception for the the Federal Hocking Secondary’s student chapter of the National Art Honors Society’s sixth annual 8 X 10 Photography Exhibit in the ARTS/West gallery space, 132 W. State St. Athens, OH, Feb. 27 to March 25.

Enjoy this year’s selection of 29 images submitted by students ranging in ages from elementary to high school; chosen by a panel of local jurors to represent our unique district.

Several photos are highlighted with special recognition which include three “Juror’s Favorites,” eight “Emerging Artists,” and even a “People’s Choice” award to be selected at the opening reception.

This is the Federal Hocking chapter of the National Art Honors Society’s service project that aims to reach out to the area public to highlight the talent of young artists in our district.  These high school student members supported the jurors, created publicity, curated the exhibit, and host the opening.  The talented members of the Federal Hocking NAHS are: Gracie Beha, Kendra Duncan, Brianna Ward, Emily Schall, Michelle Tritipo, Caitlin Love, Victoria Meyers, and Miranda Scott.

The opening reception is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Live entertainment is scheduled.
