Ponte Vedra Public Education Foundation to host ArtWorks exhibition April 30


Hundreds of local residents will enjoy artwork created by Ponte Vedra public school students at the annual ArtWorks celebration, to be held Sunday, April 30 at 1 p.m. at the Sawgrass Marriott.

Sponsored by the Ponte Vedra Public Education Foundation, the free, public event will display original artwork created by students from Ocean Palms and PVPV/Rawlings elementary schools, Valley Ridge Academy, Landrum Middle School, and Nease and Ponte Vedra high schools.

Each year, art teachers select works created by their students. Professional artists are then brought in to choose which pieces will be exhibited during the ArtWorks show. An exhibition of student artwork will occur from 1 to 2 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony for all student artists. One student’s art from each school will designated as “Best in Show;” the winning artwork will be professionally framed and displayed with a plaque in the student’s school.

Since 1983, PVPEF has been working to enhance and enrich the educational experience for Ponte Vedra's public school students. For more information on the foundation, its mission and programs, visit www.pvedfoundation.org.
