May is just jam packed with art.

The second annual Port St. Joe student art show began on Sunday and will run through Friday at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf.

The event coincides with the Forgotten Coast Great Plein Air Paint Out, a weeklong celebration of art along the Forgotten Coast.

All art students from Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School are given the opportunity to display projects completed throughout the school year for visitors to enjoy.

On a Thursday, a reception will be held from 5:30 until 7 p.m. ET for guests to meet and greet with many of the artists. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served.

For art teacher Julie Hodges, she said that the event allows the students to take pride in the work that they’ve produced across various mediums.

“The students spend all year working and working, but not displaying their art,” said Hodges. “This is a great opportunity to open our doors and let everyone see what the students are doing.”
