Student art show winners
Some 100 students, teachers, parents and onlookers recently celebrated winners of the fifth annual Student Art Show at Reynolds Homestead in Critz.
This year’s show drew entries from 13 schools and 159 artists ages 6 to 19. More than 230 pieces were on exhibit. The schools included Patrick County, Bassett, Martinsville and Magna Vista high schools, Blue Ridge Elementary, Hardin Reynolds Memorial, Stuart Elementary, Meadows of Dan Elementary, Martinsville Middle and Laurel Park Middle. North Stokes High School, Surry Central High School and Millennium Charter Academy from North Carolina participated, and home-schooled students were eligible.
