Ten NDA artists have their artworks featured in the 2017 41st Annual University of St. Francis High School Art Exhibition sponsored by the School of Creative Arts.  The University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts will hold the exhibition through March 19, 2017. Artwork will be on display in the John P. Weatherhead gallery in the Mimi and Ian Rolland Visual and Art Communication Center of the USF campus, just off Leesburg Road.

This exhibition features student work from high schools throughout Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. Works are first juried by the students’ high school teachers to a selection of ten works by each school, which are then judged by a regional artist at the School of Creative Arts. Cash awards are given to the top artists as selected by the exhibition judge. Special thanks to award sponsors: United Art and Education, Papier’s Creative Framing, Crestwoods Frame Shop and Gallery, and Northside Galleries and Custom Framing.
