Longview Museum of Fine Arts Hosts 58th Student Invitational

You won't believe the beauty and perceptions created by student artists in this year's student art invitational, now on exhibit at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts.

The exhibition gives students an opportunity to display their artwork within the gallery and compete for top honors and prize money. Students from 15 area high schools have submitted 250 works in a variety of categories including computer graphics, photography, mixed media, painting, drawing, block printing, sculpture, and ceramics. 

Winners from each category will receive a ribbon and a cash award. Caleb Bell, Tyler Museum of Art's curator, is this year's judge for the Invitational. Bell's expertise focuses on contemporary Texas art and he has recently organized several exhibitions highlighting exceptional regional talents including Tin Toys & Raw Realities, Daniel Blagg, and Ed Blackburn.

With so many creative students entering this year's invitational, visitors are sure to see some familiar names on the walls. So bring your friends and families and prepared to be inspired by the young talent in our area.

Opening reception is Sunday, March 4, from 2 to 4 pm. The exhibit is on display through March 24.

The museum is at 215 E. Tyler Avenue, Longview.
