The Middlefield Historical Society will host its annual invitational student art shows in April and May, with the High School/Middle School show on Saturdays and Sundays, April 9, 10, 16 and17, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the lower level of the Historical Society, 14979 South State Avenue. Participating schools will be Berkshire High and Junior High, Cardinal High, Chardon High and Middle schools, Grand Valley High, and Newbury High and Junior High schools.
The elementary show will be held on May 7, 8, 14 and 15 at the same location and same hours with Berkshire Elementary, Cardinal elementary and Middle schools, Chardon’s four elementary schools, Ledgemont Elementary, and Newbury Elementary represented.
There is no admission charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Access is directly off the parking lot and is handicap-accessible. Shows are judged by professional artists and/or art instructors, with prizes awarded for first and second places as well as honorable mention. A “Best of Show” is also given at the High School/Middle School level.
The Middlefield Historical Society would like to thank all of the art teachers who choose and display their students’ work as well as The Frank Agency and the Western Reserve Farm Cooperative for their ongoing financial support. Plan to visit both shows and be amazed at the talent of students from the kindergarten through high school years.
