The 2013 Annual ESAL Student Show was wonderful, bright and colorful. A fine collection of impressive student talent. These students are to be congratulated. Behind the scenes, the Student Show Committee did great honor to the student and the art league by their hard work and professionalism. Rosemary Gibbons, Chair, and Marge Bradach, Tracey Arvidson, Beth Temple and Carole Campbell came together do the myriad of tasks that make up the great effort needed to coordinate teachers and students, secure and assemble prize donations, produce exciting graphics to encourage participation, attract attention through publicity and bring all the pieces together for the actual exhibit. Many thanks!
