Opening reception 5-8 p.m. Friday, runs through Oct. 12, Cottonwood Center for the Arts, 427 E. Colorado Ave., free; 520-1899, cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com.

Almost 100 pieces of artwork by local art teachers will make their way onto the walls at Cottonwood Center for the Arts.

"District 11 Art Teachers: Honoring Our Public Servants" opens Friday with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m.

Cassidy Jones is an art teacher at Doherty High School and has taught drawing and painting classes to kids at Cottonwood. She's also a painter and sculptor who likes to incorporate positive text into her work, such as "Turn obstacles into opportunities."

"A lot has to do with uplifting messages, and women in my life," she says, "like my mom and my sisters."

"It's a way to show art by people who have dedicated their lives to service in some way," says Felicia Kelly, director of marketing and events for Cottonwood.
