Art educators are artist in their own right. Sometimes we forget, but the Inspiring Minds Art Educator Exhibit at ValleyArts Community Gallery takes time every year to remind us of this fact. This exhibit showcases the work of the art educators who are inspiring and teaching students throughout Essex County.
This is the third year ValleyArts is producing this exhibit and it has grown from nine artists the first year and 15 the second year to 31 artists this year, exhibiting over 65 pieces of work. The opening reception on April 11, 2019 attracted 120 art appreciators to the Community Gallery to meet the artists and view the work.
