This year’s show is expected to have artwork from the classes of Kristin Walters, Valerie Eninsche, Jane Montero, Amara Karapas, Krickett Chamberlain and Roger Sprau. Chamberlain, a Dexter High School art teacher, said the month-long regional event will showcase some of the talented DCS students and their work.

Chamberlain said this show is open to Michigan Art Educators who are a member of the Michigan Art Education Association. She said each member is allowed to select five pieces per level taught to enter into a Region Show. DCS falls into Region 3 which comprises Washtenaw, Monroe and Jackson counties.

During its time displayed the work will be juried by a panel of Art Education experts, Chamberlain said. The selected works will then move onto a State level adjudication at the beginning of March and then will be displayed with all other State chosen works in March/April.
