ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - The public is invited to view some 80 artworks produced by seven students attending Central High School in St. Joseph at Northwest Missouri State University's St. Joseph Center.

A reception to celebrate the opening of the exhibit will be 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, May 16, at the St. Joseph Center.

The artwork, representing a variety of media, will be displayed from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday until June 30 at the St. Joseph Center, located at 706 Felix St. 

Barry L. Reynolds, art teacher at Central, said he works to inspire his students to be creative by giving them opportunities to stretch their minds and imaginations. Reynolds said he enjoys linking literature and art and using poetry and fiction as catalysts to inspiration and imaginative expression in other mediums.

"Art allows us a means to express what cannot be said in either words or numbers," Reynolds said. "Language has always, as it approaches the borders of experience, reached with metaphor toward the inexpressible, has taken us to the approaches to silence and the other. Art, including music, is a means for crossing that border, for making that reach."

Northwest's St. Joseph Center offers graduate programs in curriculum and instruction; educational leadership; psychology, sociology and counseling; instructional technology and a master of business administration.
