June 6, 2017 – More than 50 local elementary school students will showcase a variety of original creative works in the “Young Artists” exhibition being held through July 14 in the Widmann Gallery at King’s College. 

Art students in first through sixth grades have produced compositions with graphite, colored pencil, pastel, pen and ink, watercolor, mixed media, and acrylic.  The artworks are varied in subject matter and include figures, animals, still life, architecture, landscapes, seascapes, and portraits. The students represent Dallas, Shavertown, Lehman, Hunlock Creek, Larksville, Wyoming, Kingston, Hudson, Wilkes-Barre, Bear Creek, Pittston Township and Dupont. 

All of the students study under the direction of Sue Hand of Sue Hand's Imagery, Dallas. The students have studied under Hand’s direction, as well as Lora Womer, Hunlock Creek, and Dallas residents Nicole Jacobs and Alexis Lanza.  

The exhibit is coordinated by award winning artist Sue Hand, who holds an honorary doctorate of humanities from King’s College. A reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, June 16, in the Widmann Gallery in the Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets.
