A full house jammed the Whitewater Valley Arts Association gallery Friday for the opening of an art show featuring more than 100 works by Fayette County elementary school students.

Of those works, more than 30 have been selected to be made into vinyl banners that will be displayed on downtown streetlights.

This is the fourth year for the elementary art show and the second year that some works have been chosen for banners. Mayor Harold Gordon suggested the idea of the banners, having seen a similar display in the city of Wabash, where his granddaughter’s had been displayed.

All the work will be displayed for the rest of this month at the WVAA gallery, 402 Central Ave.
