Creating youthful impressions

-- — If anyone has any doubts about the creative minds of today’s young people, we steer these skeptics to the Youth Art Month exhibits scheduled to open this weekend at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts.

The Youth Art Exhibit will feature art work from students from kindergarten through eighth grade. The Regional High School Competition features juried art from high school students from South Georgia and North Florida.

Annually, the arts center and Valdosta State University Art, in association with the National Art Education Association, present Georgia Art Education Association’s Youth Art Month. It is an opportunity to celebrate the arts as well as express the importance of arts in schools.

These shows allow dozens of area students to participate in an exhibit shown in the professional setting of a gallery. It is a great opportunity and a learning experience for these students who may continue pursuing art in the future.

In this age of education cuts, when the arts often face the steepest cuts in school budgets, we would do well to remember it may be the most creative minds that save us.

Showtime

This exhibit is scheduled to open with a free, public reception, 2-4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, then run through March 22, Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts, 527 N. Patterson St.

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies. Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
