“It is floor to ceiling every wall,” said Marti Christman, the director of The Art Center in Dumas Monday as she watched art students from Dumas High School (DHS), along with teachers Selenda Hightower and Nancy Angeles, hanging pictures and setting out sculptures and other art works in preparation for the annual art festival and exhibition of student art that has become a May tradition at the center. The exhibition, put on by the DHS Art Club, includes works from all the art students attending DHS, Dumas Jr. High, and Dumas Intermediate School. It begins this week and hangs until May 21.
The high point of the exhibition comes May 14 with the annual Dumas Independent School District (DISD) Art Festival, but Christman suggests people come out and take a look early. There is a lot of art to see. There are paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, and other works. Nearly every medium is represented, according to Angeles.
