Blue Ridge Arts Council in Seneca, SC, Features Student Exhibition

The Blue Ridge Arts Council in Seneca, SC, is presenting the 2013 SDOC Student Exhibit, on view in the Blue Ridge Arts Center’s gallery through Apr. 17, 2013.

Whether or not you have ever experienced the excitement of viewing an art exhibit featuring the incredible talents of children in Oconee County schools, there is an unbelievable treat awaiting you. For five weeks, the Arts Center will be alive and overflowing with more than 500 pieces of vibrant 2-D and 3-D art works providing a feast for the eyes.

Every year at this time, in celebration of the nationally observed Youth Art Month in March, the Blue Ridge Arts Center is filled with the vivid colors and amazing creations of K-12 students in Oconee County schools, selected by their art teachers. Visitors to the exhibit are amazed at the students’ talents and skills. Part of this can be attributed to excellent arts education provided by Oconee County teachers. This has been evidenced through high ratings received by local students in regional and state competitions, as well as the number of students from the county selected to attend the SC Governor’s School for the Arts.

The Blue Ridge Arts Center is located in the historic district of Seneca, among the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills of upstate South Carolina. Its gallery is housed in the city’s oldest church structure (1882), which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The facilities are maintained by the Blue Ridge Arts Council, a volunteer-based, non-profit organization.

In this original church sanctuary you will find our permanent art collection as well as the Gallery, featuring a variety of exhibits throughout the year. The Studios offer art classes for all ages, demonstrations, workspace for artist members and meeting space. The Art Library provides art reference books, videos and instructional materials in various mediums. Every two months the Gallery features a new exhibit of two and three dimensional artwork, many of which can be purchased. Annual exhibits include a Members Show, a Student Exhibit, and Invitational Juried Exhibits.
