The art exhibit for March at Oak Ridge Public Library is a vibrant collection of drawings and paintings by artists from Girls Inc. of Oak Ridge. Formerly known as the Girls Club, this organization first began in 1976 as a girls-only sports program. Encouraged by strong community advocates, Girls Inc. quickly grew into an after school, summer camp, break camp, and sports program for girls from 5-18 years old. Girls Inc. has grown to become an integral part of the Anderson, Roane and Knox County communities serving over 850 girls per year.

Girls are encouraged to be strong, smart and bold and this exhibit demonstrates these qualities. The young artists explore color, shapes, symmetry, and self-expression in these twenty-nine works of nature, portrait, and abstract paintings. Energetic blocks of color contrast with finely detailed still lifes of flowers. Determination and whimsy are seen in bright portraits and cartoons. Please visit the Library during the month of March to view the works of these young artists.
