When Wayne Conyers started putting together a place for art educators to display their artwork nine years ago, he never thought that it would grow to be what it is today. The concept for this exhibition goes back to his own years of experience of teaching at the high school level. While he loved the teaching, he was also eager to find a way to show his creativity on a personal level. 
After becoming a college professor, he started inviting area high school teachers to submit their work for an exhibit on the McPherson College campus.  For the past nine years, anywhere from 12 – 26 regional public school teachers have taken advantage of an exhibition venue for their own work. 
The exhibition reflects the diversity of techniques, media, and concepts coming from those who provide students with an education in art.  A total of 110 pieces of art work are being shown, both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional pieces.
The public is invited to the closing reception of the exhibition, not only to see the work but also to meet the art educators who created them.  The reception will be Friday, March 26, from 7-8 p.m. in Friendship Hall on the campus of McPherson College. The McPherson College Visual Arts Department will host the reception. Immediately following the end of the reception, the artists will be taking their work home with them.
