Brooke Bray and Gareth Robinson attended the Blaine House reception last month and received awards for having artwork included in the exhibit.

The Maine Youth Excellence in Art program celebrates the work of Maine’s student artists, and is sponsored by First Lady Ann LePage in partnership with the Maine Arts Commission, the Maine Alliance for Arts Education, and the Maine Art Education Association. Schools across Maine are invited to submit outstanding student artwork for a rotating exhibit at the Blaine House, the State House, and the Burton M. Cross Office Building in Augusta.
