Local teens have art displayed at museum

The Maryhill Museum of Art will feature art by four local teens, among those from other cities, at its “Comics at the Crossroads: Art of the Graphic Novel,” exhibition.

The exhibition will run from Saturday, Sept. 18 to Monday, Nov. 15.

Local teens include Taylor Manning, Sergio Marroquin, Ian Sams and Dawain Bell. They were selected for the exhibition after participating in a free comic art workshop at the Washougal Community Library in August.

Sean McGill, library branch manager, said the workshops were well matched to the interests of teens who frequent the library.

“We have a large collection of graphic novels and we have a lot of readers,” he said. “They are super popular.”

He is also excited that local teens will have their work on display.

“It’s an incredible opportunity,” McGill said.

The teens will talk about their art at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18 as a part of opening day festivities.

The museum is located at 35 Maryhill Museum Drive, Goldendale, Wash. It is open seven days a week, including all holidays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Nov. 15.
