After months of preparation and creativity the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School opened its student art gallery at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf last Friday.

The weekend-long gallery showcased student art in a variety of styles from paints, to pencils to ceramics.

A variety of work adorned the walls, one section dedicated to Veterans Day-inspired works while others were creative pieces or portraits of celebrities and classmates.

Julie Hodges, the art teacher at the high school was excited to have a stream of students, parents and art-lovers through the room.

Each of her students entered one piece of art into the gallery and those who are passionate about pursuing a career in the creative field each showcased several additional pieces.

There were close to 150 pieces on display.

Hodges has taught art for 13 years, of which the first six were spent in Atlanta before taking a position at Port St. Joe Elementary School where she taught first grade.
