James B. Hawkins 44th Annual Sumner County Student Art Show

The longest-running art exhibitions in Sumner County will now bear the name of one of the region’s most beloved public figures.

In January, the Monthaven Arts and Cultural Center’s board of directors voted to name its Annual Best of Sumner County Student Art Show after James B. Hawkins, the Sumner County School Board member who passed away Dec. 6, 2019 following a months-long battle with cancer. The 44th Annual James B. Hawkins Sumner County Student Art Show will run May 3 – 17 at Hendersonville’s Monthaven Arts and Cultural Center.

The 44th Annual James B. Hawkins Sumner County Student Art Show is sponsored by Nossi College of Art and is open to all Sumner County middle and high school students. Each school will be allowed to enter up to 10 pieces of artwork in four categories: drawing, painting, 3D, and miscellaneous mixed media. Dr. Ted Rose, chair of the art department at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee, and Lois Riggin-Ezzell, director emeritus of the Tennessee State Museum, will judge this year’s exhibition.

This exhibition is open to the public. There is NO COST TO ATTEND.

Donations are gratefully accepted.
