Brief: Student Art on Exhibit at Great Falls Starbucks

Great Falls Studios (GFS) and Starbucks in Great Falls Center have teamed up with three local elementary schools to showcase student artwork. The show is sponsored by Great Falls Studios, a network of artists based in Great Falls.

GFS is working with art teachers at Great Falls, Forestville, and Colvin Run Elementary schools on the rotating exhibition. Starbucks has made its conference room wall space available for the rotating display, and GFS has donated the framing and is coordinating the display of the artwork. Each school’s art will be on display for four months at a time.

Great Falls Elementary is first up with a collection of self-portraits of artists from kindergarten through sixth grade. GFS President Laura Nichols says, “GFS can’t think of a better way to promote art in our community than providing a venue for these very talented young artists to display their work.”

The Great Falls Elementary School art will be on display continuously through February. Next up is Colvin Run Elementary from March through June of 2013, followed by Forestville Elementary from July through October.

The community is invited to attend the artist’s reception for the Great Falls Elementary Self Portraits show on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. at Starbucks in Great Falls Center at 9863 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls. For more information contact Dean Souleles by e-mail at
