Pine Tree High School art students are featured in an art gallery at the Longview Telco Credit Union. The talented students provided a mix of photography and Mexican folk art called Papel Picado. The Papel Picado "perforated paper" is a decorative craft made out of paper cut into elaborate designs. Please come see their work at 423 Gilmer Rd., from 9:00 am – 5:30 pm Monday thru Wednesday and until 6:00 pm on Thursday and Fridays. The artwork will be on display until mid-May.
Betty DeWeese, CEO of Telco Plus CU said “growing up in a home where photography was major past-time, I appreciate the new photo technology available and impressed with these students application of the technology. I’m really amazed at the detail and beauty of the Papel Picado artwork. A big thank you to the Pine Tree art students and their teacher Elizabeth White for allowing us to enjoy their amazing talents.”
