Craven Arts Council & Gallery is proud to present the works of students in the National Art Honor Society in the Director’s Gallery for May and June. These piece were created by students at the local high school in a variety of mediums. Craven Arts Council and Gallery will host a reception during the downtown New Bern ArtWalk, June 12th, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., contingent on the state entering Phase 2 of the COVID-19 plan by that point.

The impact of the arts on students has been well documented by the National Endowment for the Arts, Americans for the Arts, and numerous other organizations. The students of the National Art Honor Society at New Bern High School serves to inspire and recognize students who have shown outstanding ability and dedication to the arts. This exhibition featured four students from New Bern High School: Anna Morefield, Kimberly Cusack, Sarah-Rose Spann, and Soe Gay Moo. Each student has contributed pieces that reflect their unique talents and styles.
