WAPS Art Exhibit in Galleria Valéncia


Galleria Valéncia at Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is filled with unique pieces of artwork created by Jeffery Morgan’s art students at Winona Area Public Schools (WAPS). Contributing artists attend Jefferson STEM Elementary and Goodview Elementary.

During the month of April visitors to the gallery will enjoy colorful artwork that was created using a variety of mediums and elements of design. Many of the pieces exhibited were created when students worked with artist-in-residence Andrew Foss, which was an opportunity made possible by an Artists in Education grant from Southeast Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC) and a monthly grant from the Winona Area Public Schools. Visitors are encouraged to sign the guestbook, so that the young artists know who attended the show.

The public is invited to a small reception to celebrate the young artists on Thursday, April 14th, 4:30pm- 5:30pm, inside MCA’s home, the Valéncia Arts Center.

MCA is in the process of setting up art shows for the upcoming school year. If schools or artists are interested in displaying their work in Galleria Valéncia, contact Jamie at jschwaba@smumn.edu.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts, an affiliate program of Saint Mary’s University, a nonprofit organization, offers programming in dance, music, visual art, and theatre. Classes, lessons, workshops, and camps are offered for youth ages 18 months and older through adults at the Valéncia Arts Center, located at the corner of 10th and Vila streets. For more information go to www.mnconservatoryforthearts.org, email mca@smumn.edu, or call 507-453-5500.
