APEX AND FRIENDSHIP ANNUAL
HIGH SCHOOL VISUAL ART
Opening Reception-March 24, 6-8pm FREE
Show Runs: March 24 - April 28
Our area high school youth create some of
the most inspiring fine arts, and this annual
exposition of both Apex high schools is sure
to evoke some profound thoughts and will
challenge us to see through the eyes of the
young adults in our community, so full of
potential and talent.
Many of the exhibitors pursue further studies
in art, so this is a showcase not to be missed! It
takes a lot of work by the art educators, who
also put their hearts and souls into an eyeopening
production and a nod to the good in
our up-and-coming generation. Applications will be available soon!
