The 2017 Spark! Art reception was held on Saturday, March 25, where young artists’ works were independently juried by a panel, including Janice McHaffie, Youth Coordinator at PineRidge Arts Council, Don Hightower, Past President of Ajax Creative Arts, and Esther Forde, Owner and Curator of Cultural Expressions Art Gallery.
It was an amazing reception with plenty of excited friends, family and of course, participants. View photos from the reception on our Flickr page.
