Albany-- South Georgia students fill the Carnegie Library with artistic expressions and show why they may be future Picassos and Michelangelos.

The Second Annual Albany Area Emerging Artists Exhibition shows off sculptures, paintings, drawings and pictures created by students from Albany State University and Darton College.

Darton's Rebekah Gillmore took home "Best in Show" for her picture she calls "Steve". She says it makes her feel good to show her work to the city of Albany.

"It's different I suppose because even my mom hasn't seen this piece yet so I guess it gives everyone a chance to see what I really do," says Gillmore.

"We take these diverse pieces of art and then it just really flows. Always surprised, always happy with the work," says ASU Art Professor Charles Williams.

The artwork is on display at the Carnegie Library until the end of the month.
