This year's Benton Grade School K-8 Art Show celebrated a year of "art-making" by the BGS students.
On April 24, the Benton Middle School Gym and Commons drew several hundred visitors for the hour-long event at which student work was displayed.
A variety of three- and two-dimensional work reflected the scope of the projects completed throughout the year.
Guest judges awarded ribbons and "Best of the Board" awards for artists in grades 5 to 8.
Certificates of Excellence were awarded to K-4 artists Jada Ankrom, Skyler Lewis, Peter Jackson, Emma Schlag, Jazmeen Ankrom, Mason Wilce, Jaycee Webb, Ashton McClintock, Aydin Davis, Tate Collins and Annalise Williams.
Area residents Elizabeth Gulley, Alicia Dixon and "Mr. A" (Gene Alexander) were honored for their meaningful support to the K-4 art program during the past school year.
The Wild Trillium hosed a table featuring summer arts opportunities for area students.
