TroyFest Student Art Show

Any time there is a competition, there are winners. But never any losers in the Annual TroyFest Student Art Show.

“Any time you compete and do your best, you cannot lose,” said Pam Smith, curator of the TroyFest Student Art Show. “You learn from the experience and you are better for it.”

So, every student in grades K-12 who competed in the 2021 TroyFest Student Art Show is a winner, Smith said.

“There have been so many challenges over the past year, with education being one of the hard-hit areas,” Smith said. Many students have been virtual this year, and teachers have had to face several new obstacles during this Covid-19 pandemic.

“I really believe that a student art show is great for lifting spirits and bringing a little normal back into our lives and the TroyFest Student Art Show is one of the best.”

The 2021 TroyFest Student Art Show is sponsored by Lawrence Hardware in Troy.

Brenda Campbell, Johnson Center for the Arts director, expressed appreciation to the management of Lawrence Hardware for its support of the arts and the annual TroyFest Student Art Show, to the supporting art teachers and all of the participating students.

The student artwork is exhibited at the Johnson Center for the Arts through May 15. The JCA will be open during TroyFest from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on April 24, and from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 25. Regular hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Monday through Friday. Admission is free.

Everyone is invited to visit the TroyFest Student Art Show and enjoy the remarkable talent of Pike County’s young artists, Campbell said.
