Bautista’s work will also be displayed in the Miller Art Museum’s Salon School of Art later this spring, and DeMeuse’s work is currently hanging at The Ridges Sanctuary, where a new art show features work by Gibraltar middle and high school students. A prominent feature of the show is a 10-foot-tall mural completed by Mrs. Meikle’s Art 1 students.
