Jarvis Middle School sixth graders Kiera Gallagher, Allen Parker, and Zoe Penner represent their school in an art show at Mohawk Antiques Mall, 100 E. Main St., Mohawk. The show opens 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 16 and continues for one week.
Kiera’s, Allen’s and Zoe’s are three of 135 works submitted from across Herkimer County as part of the County Legislature’s NASA Art Contest. The Legislature sought grades K-6 student art from which they chose one K-3 piece and one 4-6 piece to present a visiting NASA astronaut who will tour the area on Wednesday, Apr. 13.
The pieces all reflect the subject “Journey to Mars – My Trip to Space.”
The owner of the antique mall is hosting the show in support of area schools. He is advertising the show in April’s Mohawk Living Magazine, professionally framing the winning pieces, and providing refreshments for the opening day.
The show is free and the public is invited.
