The Fly Cultural Arts building was packed Sunday, April 24 with viewers at the Bedford County Youth Art Show. Approximately 1,500 attended, organizers said, with many saying they were extremely impressed by the display of talent found in one room.
Southside Assistant Principal Layne Talbott and Principal Reita Vaughn supported their students by attending the Bedford County Youth Art Show. With them is Southside second grader Jordan George.
Cascade High School senior Charley Solis, who stands next to his two self-portraits, came well-dressed for the occasion.
"I just can't believe all the talent we have in our county," Regina Campbell said. "I'm just blown away."
