The Salt Forks Arts and Craft Festival came to a close Sunay afternoon.
The three day festival at Cambridge City Park displayed all types of artwork. Pottery to photography, metal work to musicians and everything in-between. One of the must see displays was the student art exhibit. Kindergartners to graduating seniors from local high schools all proudly showed their many talents. A graduating senior from Meadowbrook earned the grand prize with her drawings, a $2,000 scholarship toward her college education. Student Art Chairperson, Christina Dettra believes that student artwork is at the heart of the festival.
"We’re very fortunate to have student involvement every year at our festival, and what we would really like to do is promote art among students, " said Dettra.
Rachel Dettra, a student at John Glen, won second place in the high school division for her nature photography. This was her fourth year having entries in the student art exhibit. She encourages any students interested in art to get involved.
"I suggest any kid who’s interested at all in art or photography, painting, anything really, if you’re interested in it, you should definitely do this. It’s a lot of fun."
