A reception for high school artists of the Alle-Kiski Arts Consortium is set to run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 12, in the Art Gallery at Penn State New Kensington." Arts Alive" is the theme of the annual student art exhibit that runs through March 30 in the gallery. The show is sponsored by the consortium, a group of local educators dedicated to bringing performing and visual arts to area students. Artwork by high school students from six area school districts -- Allegheny Valley, Burrell, Deer Lakes, Highlands, Kiski Area and New Kensington-Arnold -- are featured in the show. More than 500 two- and three-dimensional pieces include paintings, drawings, sculpture and jewelry. Art submitted for the show must have been produced within the students' schools, not outside of class. The exhibit and reception are free to the public. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. weekends. For more information, contact Prissy Pakulski at 724-337-4536 x2010 or via email.
