“K-12 Visual Eye-zations” is an art show sponsored by the Central Oregon Curriculum Action Team (CAT) allowing elementary,  middle and high school students around Central Oregon to showcase their artwork, according to Pat Roberts, the Pinckney Arts gallery organizer.

The artwork is displayed in the Pinckney Gallery in Grandview. The pieces on display are for sale from $30 to $200. The exhibit  began on Feb. 8 and will continue to showcase the artwork until Feb. 24.

Local band to play at ASCOCC sponsored event

The student government will be presenting a “Country Night” at Mountain’s Edge bar on Thursday, Feb. 24.

The event will feature local band Pine Lane, and if students bring their Central Oregon Community College ID the bar will offer happy
hour prices on food all night.

Since it is a bar, students under 21 will not be able to attend.

A budget of $1,000 was approved for the event, during an Associated Students of COCC meeting on Feb. 18. While the event should cost around $800, the extra $200 was agreed upon “to be on the safe side,” said ASCOCC events coordinator John MacAuley.
