WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A group of girls from the first graduating class of the Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington had their work showcased at an art show on Friday, March 24.

The Bryand Gallery on 20 South Front Street hosted the show featuring the GLOW Academy Senior Art Club. Per GLOW Academy Art Teacher Regular Greyson, the group of girls were the winners of Mayfair’s first Holiday Window Display competition, designed the letter “D” for the Black Lives Do Matter installation at the Cameron Art Museum and have led multiple family art activities at the museum as well.

“We are the seniors at Glow Academy, are demonstrating their talents, their art and we’re exhibiting here downtown and we’re very excited to be able to show our art pieces that we’ve worked really hard for,” Victoria Roblero-Mendoza, one of the students, said.

GLOW Academy is also holding a Spring Market on Saturday, March 25, selling handcrafted goods from local vendors and original artwork painted by GLOW’s art club from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. All donations will benefit the Malala Fund and the local Domestic Violence Shelter.
