In March, 2020, our 28th Annual Poetry Art Night (PAN) Exhibit was our first Exhibition to go virtual. PAN is our only juried and judged show. 75 incredible artworks and their inspiring poems were hung at the Suzanne Haskew Arts Center on March 18. The SHAC closed that week due to COVID-19 and the spread into a pandemic. As the SHAC reopens, June 15, PAN is still there. Private viewings allow people a safe, sanitized way to see the Exhibit as it was installed.

February, 2020 – High School Art Exhibition

Our first annual High School show happened in 2020 just before quarantine hit.

January, 2020 – Dream a Little Dream

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all that participate in his legacy. Dream a Little Dream was both the vision of peace and brotherhood, and the dream qualities of life and its possibilities.
