LCVA to exhibit highlights from the 2019 Start with Art

Each spring, the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts (LCVA) hosts the Annual Area Youth Art Month Exhibition, which showcases around 1,500 artworks created by students from public, private, and home schools in 13 surrounding counties. At the close of the exhibition, one work from each school is selected for a yearlong highlights exhibition. The chosen artworks are matted, framed and hung in the hallways of Longwood’s Hull Education Center, where they serve as an inspiration to tomorrow’s teachers.

These student artists will be honored by Longwood University at a ceremony and opening reception on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 2:30 p.m. The event will be held in the Hull Education Center (on the corner of Brock Commons and Franklin Street) at Longwood University.

Students whose work was selected for the exhibition include: Brianna Jones, Lunenburg Middle School (Jessi Fleisher ’04); Kaleb Clement, Victoria Elementary School (C. Duarte); Dahmir Coles, Kenbridge Elementary School (C. Duarte); and Miranda Allsbrook, Central Senior High School (Jean Kunath).
