Florence Events Center: "Fresh Impressions" to Feature Young Talent

During the month of November, the Florence Events Center will be celebrating high school artists in the community with a juried show in Gallery One titled Fresh Impressions. This exhibit has been made possible by the generous support of the Friends of FEC, Ladies of Elks #1858, the Florence Rotary Club, and Pacific Frameworks.

This exhibit will be juried by nationally acclaimed and award winning artist F. Michael Wood. Awards and cash prizes will be given to first, second, and third place entries. Honorable mention ribbons will also be given.

A reception will be held to honor all of the participating artists, as well as their families and our Sponsors, in Gallery One, FEC, on November 8th, from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Award winners will be acknowledged at that time. This reception is during the Second Saturday Gallery Tour, and the public is invited to attend.

Siuslaw High School art teacher Kim Pickell, and Mapleton High School art teacher Mindy Mendenhall have been instrumental in helping make this exhibit possible, offering students encouragement and assistance with the application process. Thanks also to the Gallery Committee at FEC for organizing this event, and to FEC staff for their enthusiastic support.
