Authors, artists and other creative people from the Mexia area were recognized by Navarro College South at a reception on Friday, Aug. 25.
Those honored included Staci Aclin, Gail Griffin, Dr. Anna Kantor, Fred Neale, Corey Posey, Virginia Riddle, John Marc Roberson and Joel Shoemake.
Each featured artist had a table on which they displayed their work. Those attending could walk between the tables, meet the author or artist, ask questions and see what their work entailed.
About 30 attended the reception; and the writers, artists and organizers hope to hold a similar event in the spring of 2018 to encourage youth to pursue the fine arts, and possibly get a stronger turnout, Kantor said.
