Newport Middle School and High School art students have been hard at work preparing for their biennial exhibit at the Library Arts Center, 58 North Main Street, Newport, N.H.

“It is a wonderful thing for our youth to have the opportunity to display their artwork in a professional arts setting for the whole community to enjoy!” said LAC Executive Director Kate Niboli.

You can view the exhibit March 16 – April 10. Gallery hours: Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Friday 10 a.m. – 2p.m.

LAC’s Second Annual Peeps Diorama Contest takes place March 23 – 30, with an opening Peeps party on March 22, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Similar contests featuring the marshmallow sweets have swept the nation for nearly a decade, with popular contests hosted by urban news publications such as the Washington Post, the Twin Cities Pioneer Press and the Denver Post.

The Library Arts Center’s contest is the first of its kind in the Upper Valley region.

“Last year’s Peeps Diorama Contest was a huge success” said Niboli. “Too often we forget that art is for everyone and that art can be fun and even silly!”
