Last Chance to See Art by Club Members

The artwork created by members of the Boys & Girls Club will be on display through month’s end at the Canyon branch.

The display, part of the 2018 National ImageMakers Photography & Fine Arts exhibit, was opened to the public last month.

Photos, colored pencil drawings, pastels, watercolors, oil and acrylics, sculpture and collage went on display and were judged by Laguna Beach artists Mary Church, Pat Sparkhul and Tom Lamb. Top entries will go on to be judged at a regional exhibit.

Visitors check out artwork by Boys and Girls Club members.
