RRHS to host Arts Festival this Friday

By Jordan Desserre

On Friday February 7th, Rainy River High School’s Student Council will be having an Arts Festival and Auction from 7:00-10:00 p.m. that is open to the public. A canteen will be open and light refreshments will available.
Art viewing will begin right away with artists present to explain and display their work. Some of the art being displayed is student artwork from this year and art from the collections of Rebecca Wood and Jennifer Martin. Then at 7:45 the live performances will start in the gymnasium and this includes the school’s drama group performing improv, the writers group reciting poetry, the children’s dance group Just for Kix, the musical Johnson family, Kitty Gale and Jackie Dufresne on the piano/ flute and much more! After the presentations, an auctioneer from James Auctions in Baudette will auction off certain special pieces of art including a limited edition framed print.
Artisans are encouraged to book an exhibition booth for displaying and selling their wares. The booths are free! Donations of artwork such as sculptures, paintings, woodwork, leather crafts, beadwork, stained glass etc. would be greatly appreciated.
Donations of money will also be accepted and all money raised goes directly to Student Council to make every student’s high school experience more enjoyable.
