Albany -- Paintings by South Georgia's future Picassos and Michaelangelos were judged and showcased in the Albany Museum of Art Sunday.

These awards were given out during the 28th Annual Kiwanis Student Art Exhibit. The art work was created by public and private middle and high school students from Dougherty and Lee counties.

The Dougherty County Kiwanis Club received over 400 entries for this exhibit.

"We love to encourage the students with their artwork. Not everyone is perfect with their English or Math or Science. Some people express themselves through their creativity, and we really like to encourage that," said Visual Arts Chair, Kristin Caso.

Eight pieces from this exhibit will be taken to Carrollton, Georgia for a statewide competition next month. High school students in this exhibit are also eligible for scholarships.
