GALLIPOLIS — More than 300 Gallipolis City School students were recently chosen to have their art exhibited by the French Art Colony (FAC) in its spring art show. Selected students range in age from kindergarten through high school, and attend Green, Rio Grande and Washington elementaries, Gallia Academy Middle School (GAMS) and Gallia Academy High School (GAHS).
“The best things about my job are my students,” said Lolita Mullen, art teacher at Rio Grande and Green elementaries. “Their effort and joy in their work make me love everyday with them. I can’t imagine doing anything else; nothing else puts a smile on my face like seeing a student discover something new. It’s beautiful and something worth doing with my life.”
The spring art show will be on display at the FAC through April 28. The galleries are open to the public Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“The visual arts staff of the Gallipolis City School District wish to thank Joseph Wright, the members of the FAC Board, and the local communities for their continued support of our public school art programs,” concluded Mike Vigue, GAHS art teacher.
