By David Rogers. April 29, 2017. BOONE, NC — Not lost amid the glitz and glamour of Friday evening’s Shooting Stars talent showcase was the Visual Arts section of the event. Each finalist was introduced via video to see their submissions, as well as to hear the students articulate the importance of art to their respective lives. Groups of artists were introduced alternately between groups of performing artists. After each video was played, then each group of visual artists was paraded onto the stage for their well-deserved recognition.

Ranging in age from kindergarten and second graders to high school seniors, the Visual Arts finalists represented a number of different medium but all displayed — and articulated — their creativity.
