The event is set for March 26-April 4 at the Gallery on the Mezzanine at the West Plains Civic Center, 110 St. Louis St., in West Plains.
It is sponsored by Missouri State University-West Plains’ University/Community Programs (U/CP) Department.
This free event, in its 19th year, will feature two- and three-dimensional pieces by children in grades kindergarten through eighth.
The artists will represent the following school districts:

Each school is allowed to display up to 30 pieces of artwork in the exhibit, organizers said.
An awards ceremony will take place beginning at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 31, in the civic center theater. A reception will follow on the mezzanine level for art-viewing.
The works will be juried by artists from the region, organizers said.
Area residents are invited to view the pieces during regular civic center hours, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 1 to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
