The work of two Norfork High School art students has been selected for this year’s Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition competition. Kylie Manes’ batik titled “Standpoint” was selected, along with Cole Light’s batik titled “Spirit Messenger.”

In addition, Manes’ artwork won “Best in Class.” She will receive a monetary award for the art department at a ceremony to be held at the Arkansas Art Center in Little Rock May 11th.

The work of both students will be on display at the Arkansas Art Center April 30th through July 22nd and then travel throughout the state being featured in the Arkansas Art Mobile.

In 1961, the Arkansas Arts Center hosted the first statewide Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition to ensure learning, inspiration, and creative expression. Now in its sixth decade, this annual children’s art exhibition showcases artwork by students in kindergarten through 12th grade from across the state. Only the top eight pieces of artwork in each grade level are selected.
