In this exhibition area students from kindergarten through 8th grade have their work on display in the professional setting of the Harlow Gallery. Each year the Gallery invites art teachers from elementary and middle schools from throughout the greater Augusta area to select their best student art to showcase in this wonderful celebration of talented young artists and of the importance of arts in education.
