Public display of art appreciated

A reader writes to thank the owner of an Ashcroft business for allowing his students to display their artwork.

Dear Editor,

Many thanks to Angela Bandelli of the Sidewalk Gallery in Ashcroft for hosting the recent exhibition of student artwork from Desert Sands Community School. Several of the students commented on seeing their work on public display, and were thrilled with the exposure.

The presence of a venue for the ongoing display of visual art adds to the already vibrant local arts community in Ashcroft, and we appreciate the chance for students to be involved. We also recognize that there is no direct commercial advantage for Angela to keep her display fresh and locally relevant, yet she goes to considerable effort to do so; and the community benefits. Thanks again!
