The public was invited to stop by and view the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering Student Art Show! Elko County students once again prepared a fantastic gallery of their artwork. Creative and colorful works by elementary students were displayed on the walls of the Western Folklife Center's G Three Bar Theater, and high school photography artwork was displayed in the Pioneer Hotel elevator lobby.

The Western Folklife Center hosted a reception on Thursday, March 28, 2012 for Elko County student artists. Parents, friends, teachers and the interested public were invited to attend and celebrate the wonderful works presented by these talented students.
