Arlee CDC released the following information:
Work by young artists age eight to twelve will be on display at the Arlee Community Development Corporation’s Fourth Friday Open House on June 23 from 5 to 7 PM. In addition to the display of artwork by participants in the ACDC’s youth art program, the event will feature live music by Andre Floyd, photography by students at the Salish Kootenai College, and the Killdeer Artisans Spring-Summer Exhibit, along with finger foods, beverages and dessert.
“We’re so glad to give these young artists a chance to showcase their work,” said Donna Mollica, coordinator of the ACDC’s youth art program. “The focus of our program is on public art, so they’ve been creating art and also taking fields trips to see public displays in Missoula and Pablo. The program gives them inspiration for their own creations as well as a sense of how public art connects us as a community.” The young artists, instructor Cameron Decker, and his associate Melaia Matt will be at the event to discuss the program and their artwork.
Everyone is welcome to attend this family-friendly event at the Arlee CDC office and gallery, formerly the Hangin’ Art Gallery, at 92555 US Hwy. 93 in Arlee. The ACDC’s youth art program is funded by O.P. and W.E. Edwards Foundation with transportation donated by the Missoula Art Museum.
