GREAT FALLS – Great Falls High School will show off its artistic talents Thursday through its annual student art reception and sale.

The reception is part of the month-long student art exhibition at the school’s Dahl Gallery.

There will also be a craft sale featuring limited edition Bison Clay Harvest ornaments, Peruvian bracelets, Bison handcrafted holiday cards, and Martinson chocolates.

Pre-ordered ornaments will be pre-packed and ready for pick up. If you did not pre-order, they will have 50-60 ornaments for cash sales.

The clay ornaments were made by students with clay recovered from construction at the school.

The reception is a time for the public to enjoy student works of art and speak with their creators.

Students say it provides a unique experience to see how others interpret their work.

“I’ve been to a few art galleries outside of the Dahl Gallery and it’s great to have a professional sort of feel to it all,” says AP art student Jacob Novak. “Looking at people reacting to your art and seeing, ‘Oh is that the way that I intended them to look at it? Or is that the reaction that I was looking for?’ It’s cool to talk to people too and see what they took away from your art.”

The student art reception runs from 3:15 -4:30 on Thursday and the student are exhibition will be on display until January 13th.
