Derrick Pace, Junior at Christ School

The Arts Council of Henderson County, in Hendersonville, NC, will present the exhibit, Artists of Tomorrow/Secondary School Exhibition, on view in the D. Samuel Neill Gallery, from Mar. 12 - 27, 2010.

This is the third exhibition of the thematic unit, Mentors and Students that "celebrates both the teacher as artist and the student artists," according to Jim Faucett, Executive Director. The first exhibition presented was Art Teachers Create, still on view through Mar. 6, 2010.

The Artists of Tomorrow/Secondary School Exhibition was open to all middle and high school age students (public, private and parochial schools, as well as home-schooled children) in Henderson County.

A strong proponent of arts education, Dr. Stephan Page, Superintendent of the Henderson County Public Schools says, "The arts add a measure of joy to daily interactions in a way that makes life worthwhile and meaningful. The arts not only express our personal values and beliefs, but they also provide an outlet for creative expression and personal satisfaction for the students in our schools."
The Artists of Tomorrow/Secondary School Exhibition is sponsored in part by Morris Broadband and the Times-News.

The Arts Council of Henderson County is a community organization that advocates for the arts and provides opportunities to enrich the lives of children and adults through the arts by offering exhibits, art education and performances. The Arts Council offices and gallery are handicapped accessible.

The Arts Council is supported in part by the North Carolina Arts Council, the State of North Carolina, several funds administered by the Community Foundation of Henderson County, Henderson County, and the Henderson County Travel and Tourism Bureau.
