  • Laura Jones (12)
  • Pheobe Ackerman (11)
  • Whitney Miller (11)
  • Courtney Becker (12)

“It was a really cool to see my artwork in such a professional environment. I think that everyone had kind of a surreal experience.” said Howard.

The exhibition was held from March 17 to April 9 at the Saint Louis Artist Guild in Clayton, MO.
