Thousands of art projects incorporating dozens of styles stretched throughout the hallways and classrooms recently as the Tamaqua Area Middle School art department presented its "Night of the Arts" exhibits for grades six through eight.

The displays consisted of landscape paintings, a Van Gogh feature, Pop Art boxes, graphic advertising, art history, papier mache masks, drawings, sewing pieces, fashion designs, group projects, cultural art, portraits, collages, interior design miniroom models, painting, photography, carving, sculpting, and much more.

Art teacher Kim Snyder pointed out the amount of dedication and effort that all of the students put into their art pieces.

She was also thankful for the efforts of the volunteers who helped put the exhibit together and who helped take it down.
