The ninth annual Youth Arts Festival seeks artists who would like to share their creative talents with children during an event held on campus at East Carolina University.
The annual Youth Arts Festival, scheduled this year for April 6, promotes multicultural visual and performing arts to children through hands-on projects, demonstrations and performances primarily geared to elementary and middle school children.
No sales commission or booth fees are charged. The event’s focus is on teaching children and their families about the diverse and creative talents available in the region. Participants may work with children developing hands-on art projects or simply demonstrate their creative talent.
The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. It is free and open to individuals at all age levels.
Contact Dindy Reich, Youth Arts Festival coordinator, at (252) 328-5749 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information or to sign up for the event.
Laupus Library opens its latest art exhibit today with “Artscience in Spacetime: STEAM.”
The exhibit will be on display through March 12.
Dr. Anthony C. Breuer, affiliate professor of neurology in the Brody School of Medicine and a neurologist at East Carolina Neurology, will showcase his collection of acrylic and oil paintings, depicting recognizable see-through images in multiple layers and at times warped to more closely resemble their “actual” appearance in spacetime. His work is conceptual, semi-abstract, and embedded with the nature of reality, energy, and matter, space and time.
The opening reception for the exhibit will be held Jan. 29 from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the fourth floor gallery of Laupus Library.
The spring semester exhibit is the third in the Art as Avocation series, which Laupus Library began last year as a way to highlight the artistic talents and self-expression of faculty, staff and students from the Division of Health Sciences who often pursue demanding health care and higher education careers.
