gallupARTS’ largest ever show of student artwork will range from pre-school students’ embroidery and sewing to self portraits by mid and high school students. This work comes from 14 schools, 15 teachers and 200 students who will participate from across McKinley County. Some schools are returning and will have participated in all 5 years of shows and others are entering for the first time. New this year are two charter schools and home schooled students. Across the board, you will see high quality and original artwork in many different styles and media.
