Region 10

It’s time for trees and flowers and April showers…and here in Montrose, another sure sign that spring has arrived is the Fifth Annual Montrose County School District Re-1J Art Show, to be unveiled at the Region 10 Enterprise Center (300 North Cascade) April 22-May 3.

“Art is the soul of our culture,” MHS Art Teacher and organizer Ann Marie Fleming said. “We continue to take the pulse of our spirit and nurture the inner lives of our young people by celebrating the arts, and our district should be honored for its continued commitment to art and music even as we move forward and emphasize improvement on student test scores.”

The show will be open each day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and this year’s entrants will have the chance to compete for prizes for the first time.

  “There will be first, second and third place ribbons in two categories, two-dimensional and three dimensional works,” Fleming said. “We will also award a prize for People’s Choice winner this year.”
