The Union County Community Arts Council has announced the winners of the Student Artist Showcase held at South Piedmont Community College on May 4 and 5.

The Union County Community Arts Council hosts the Student Artist Showcase, a juried show, in the spring of each year highlighting the artistic talent that is cultivated throughout Union County schools. Each year, art teachers throughout the county select the top artists from each class, in turn, those artists display their artwork for the judges in hopes of the top prize. The Student Artist Showcase is a free community event that highlights the council’s art and education initiatives that serve over 42,000 Union County students each year.
