COLUMBUS-- There is currently a curious sight to behold at the Columbus Art Gallery.
In one corner, a vision of life and death can be viewed through the silhouette of two magnificent wings. Another part of the gallery hides a small, aesthetically pleasing clay figurine of a faun youngling.
Paintings of different landscapes, capturing an assortment of feeling and imagination for viewers will fill the walls of the art gallery until April 6. The display is entirely produced by area art students from grades 7-12.
The gallery is setting aside the month of March to be Youth Art Month, and several schools jumped in on the deal.
In the lower level of the Columbus Public Library are the works of about seven different schools: St. Edward, Schuyler Central High School, Scotus, High Plains Community, Lakeview Middle/High School and there are even selections from several homeschooled students.
All of the works of art from a wide range of media can be viewed until April 6. The gallery hours are from 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-8 p.m. on Thursdays.
