Beatrice Thornton Art Exhibition

The annual Beatrice Thornton Art Exhibition is a tradition for Blue Water area students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade, and the event is quickly approaching. Art for the exhibit is curated by local art teachers in both public and private schools and is open to homeschooled students as well. 

The art is displayed in the college’s Fine Arts Building on SC4’s campus in downtown Port Huron. The event is free and open to the public. Elementary school art will be displayed from February 3-15, with an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 6. Middle school and high school art will be on display from February 24 through March 7, with an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, February 27. 

This is the 52nd year for the art show. It is a true gallery exhibit, with no judging or awarding, just a chance for the community to take a look at the creative endeavors of area school children. The types of art range from drawings to pottery to mixed media.
