STUDENT ART SHOW RECEPTION SET FOR 3 P.M. THURSDAY, NOV. 7

            Several pieces of original student artwork from the Las Cruces and Gadsden Public Schools have been installed in the first-floor corridors of the Doña Ana County Government Center at 845 N. Motel Blvd. in Las Cruces. The exhibit includes paintings, etchings, photographs and drawings. The newest exhibit from elementary school students in the Las Cruces Public School District is set to be on display beginning Thursday, Nov. 7 at 3 p.m.
            A reception for the exhibit is scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. Many student artists, their families and faculty art teachers will be on hand. Refreshments will be served, and the public is encouraged to attend.
            The student art shows have been a rotating fixture for Doña Ana County’s main lobby since 2000, with thousands of works by local student artists displayed for the public during that time. There is also a mixed-media piece by students at the J. Paul Taylor Academy in the upstairs rotunda, honoring civil rights champions. Other works by local artists Virginia Romero, Meg Freyermuth, Joyce T. Macrorie, George Mendoza and others are also on permanent display and can be viewed any time during regular county business hours.
