BELPRE — Artwork by Belpre students went on display Saturday in an exhibit which will change at various times through the school year.

Citizens Bank along with Artsbridge hosted a meet and greet Saturday at the Belpre Citizens Bank location, inviting local residents to come and check out work by students from Belpre City Schools that is now on display in the bank’s new lobby.

“This is a great partnership benefiting students,” said Diane McDonald, Artsbridge Programs Coordinator.

Teachers and students of the Belpre Art Department were present Saturday to talk about the art, and many friends and family of the artists came out to show their support.

“It is a great honor to have my art displayed around the Mid-Ohio Valley,” said Lydia White, one of the artists.

White said she likes creating portraits and the two on display at the bank were done with colored pencil. White is the artist who created the mural on the back wall of JC Penney’s store at the Grand Central Mall in Vienna.

“This has been a really cool experience,” said Hannah Burton, another artist who was in attendance Saturday.

The student artwork will be changed out every few months so many students will have a chance to display their work, according to McDonald. There are currently 15 pieces on display.
