Local visual arts fans have a treat awaiting them at the mall in East Asheville. Student artwork is on display through April 7 at the Asheville Mall, featuring art from elementary, intermediate, and middle school students from around Buncombe County. High school student artwork will be on display April 8 - 28.

“The visual arts teach students critical thinking skills, collaboration, fine motor skills, and intelligent risk-taking,” explained BCS Arts Education Specialist Ms. Laura Mitchell. “It also develops their creativity while giving them a safe place to express their emotions and ideas. Visual Literacy is more important than ever for students to learn as they are presenting themselves visually to the world through digital means.”

Buncombe County Schools’ All-County Art Exhibition gives students the opportunity to share their work with the community and show what excellence in art education looks like. During this week’s opening night, hundreds of families, students, teachers, and principals visited the exhibition and enjoyed food samples from Chick-Fil-A and The Döner.

At the Asheville Mall, the exhibit is located between McAlister’s Deli and Dillards, as well as outside the former Sears store. The current exhibit will remain up until April 7.  The high school exhibit’s opening reception will be held on Monday, April 8, from 5 - 7 p.m.
