Scholastic Art Awards Exhibit

ART AWARDS EXHIBIT
Check out the Marlin and Regina Miller Gallery Facebook and Instagram pages for more images of the Regional Scholastic Art Awards Exhibit, for grades 7-12 in Berks, Carbon, Lehigh and Northampton counties.  Please visit these pages to show students some love with likes and comments. The award ceremony is cancelled and for many students this is their senior year and might be one of their last exhibitions. They have made some incredible work!

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Partly sunny with temperatures in the low to mid-50s. A stiff breeze from the northwest will be the only fly in the ointment to an otherwise nice day; blame the pressure gradient from a meandering low off the coast.
