January 3-31 North Dakota Student Art Show

North Dakota Student Art Show

Many young Williston-area artists participate in the annual North Dakota Student Art Show. The winners selected from among 2016’s 765 statewide entries will be shown in galleries around North Dakota. The exhibit will be on display Jan. 1-31 at the James. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 13 from 4:00–6:00 p.m. 

The Williston elementary, middle, and high school students whose artwork will be displayed include Sami Hammeren– Spotlight Award, Elizabeth Leko– People’s Choice Award, Kaylee Pitman (Williston Middle School); Katie Matlock (Williston High School); Ashley VanBerkom-2 pieces selected (Trinity Christian School); Brooklynn Kitchens (Lewis and Clark Elementary School); and Hayden Krieger (McVay Elementary School).

Honorable mentions also go out to two other young Williston artists: Scout Graham, whose art piece at Kids Day Out won a Beau Theige original guitar, and Kat Canerdy, whose art piece inspired by the James’ 2016 Mexican Cultural Art Class won “Best of Show” at the North Dakota State Fair.

Congratulations to all of you.
