Perry High Featured in Capitol Art Show Exhibit

 

PERRY, GA.– Art by Perry High School students was featured in the Capitol Art Exhibit in Atlanta.  Tiffany Nance, Ashley Collins and art teacher Catherine Heller attended a reception in February that featured the art, a Houston County Board of Education news release says.

The Capitol Art Exhibit is cosponsored by the Georgia Art Education Association (GAEA) and the Office of the Secretary of State.  It is the premier event of Youth Art Month and the largest student exhibition in the state.  The purpose of the exhibit is to share with our legislators and the public the exceptional, creative ability of Georgia's students. Only two students per art teacher are chosen to participate.

Ashley and Tiffany are pictured with their artwork.  Ashley created the black and white ties and Tiffany’s art is the brown bicycle with newspapers.  They are also pictured with Representative Larry O’Neal and Heller.
