Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley invites the public to attend a free art show reception Sunday featuring train-themed artwork of area youth.

Students at schools throughout the NRV were invited to create artwork pertaining to the theme, “Trains, Trains, anything goes; Use your imagination to see where it goes!” The art exhibit is held in honor of Youth Art Month.

According to FAC Director Judy Ison, the center’s goal is to provide a place for NRV youth to showcase their artistic abilities so they are encouraged to continue developing their talents.

“Students take great pride in being able to have their family and friends visit the gallery to see what they have accomplished in the arts,” she said.

The students’ creations are on display at the Fine Arts Center Gallery, 21 W. Main St., Pulaski, through Sunday’s reception, which runs 2-4 p.m. Punch and cookies will be provided.

Schools participating in this year’s exhibit include Critzer, Dublin, Pulaski, Riverlawn and Snowville elementary schools, Dalton Intermediate, Dublin Middle, and Blacksburg and Pulaski County high schools.
