Middle and high school students are exhibiting works of art at The Annual Lake County and Geauga County Juried Student Art Awards Show in The Gallery at Lakeland. The show provides gifted students the opportunity to submit their projects for adjudication, with scholarship and monetary prizes awarded. The exhibition runs through Feb. 17, with an artist reception and awards ceremony slated for Saturday, Feb. 17, at noon in Lakeland’s Dr. Wayne L. Rodehorst Performing Arts Center. The gallery is located on the first floor of the D-Building on Lakeland’s main campus, at 7700 Clocktower Dr., Kirtland, Ohio, 44094. The show is free and open to the public.
