A diverse mix of artwork done by talented students from across B.C. is now on display in Surrey.

The 50-piece juried display, called Earthwise, asked students to answer the question: “What does the environment mean to you?” and now graces the walls of the Newton Cultural Centre.

The work on exhibit was chosen by a four-member panel and represents the art of Grade 9 to 12 students from 53 public, private and alternative schools in 25 different communities.

First, second and third-place prizes will be awarded and the top 50 artists will receive certificates of achievement at a gala event planned for April 22, 6:30 p.m. at the Newton Cultural Centre, 13530 72 Ave.
