Tri Kappa Art Show

Now on display in the Gallery is the Tri Kappa Art Show. An annual event for over 25 years, the Tri Kappa Art Show features submissions from students in all three county high schools. The approximately 250 pieces in this year's show will be on display through Saturday, March 29.

Submissions were accepted in 12 categories:

Drawing I
Drawing II
Photography I
Photography II
Computer Graphics, Communication Arts & Graphic Design
Jewelry & Metalsmithing
Textile & Fiber Design
Mixed Media

Each year, a local artist is selected to act as judge for the show. This year's judge is Pat Fay, an artist with 30 years of experience.

Cash prizes are awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each category. There is also an overall "Best in Show" award, as well as a "Tri Kappa Choice" award. All winners will be honored at an Awards Ceremony and Reception, which will take place on March 26 at the Library.

Tri Kappa is a unique philanthropic organization that exists only within the state of Indiana. The service sorority was founded by a group of seven young ladies in 1901, and has since spread to include 146 Active Chapters and 114 Associate Chapters, totaling almost 9000 actively participating members.  Support for the Fine Arts has always been a main goal of Tri Kappa, which exists to bring women together to promote charity, culture, and education.

Be sure to visit the Library's Gallery between now and March 29 to view the wonderful talent that exists in our three Montgomery County high schools!
