FORT MADISON – The Fort Madison Area Arts Association is always so thrilled to host the work of our area High School Artists. This year is no exception! The exhibition will be on display in the Main Gallery of the FMAAA Art Center located at 825 Ave G through the evening of Saturday, April 30th.  Across eight art categories we see exceptional talent and the hard work that went into producing the pieces that make up this year’s exhibition. The judging involved quite a bit of deliberation, concentrating on overall design principles along with craftmanship as they evaluated the compositions. We are pleased to announce the following results of the friendly competition along with year’s overall Best of Show winner.
