   Madras High School hosted Central Oregon student artists on April 22, for the annual High School Art Show.
   Due to unseasonably bad weather, however, students from Bend, some from Redmond, and Crook County were unable to attend.
   Those exhibiting before judges were 60 to 70 young artists from Culver High, Madras High, Sisters High, and the International School of the Cascades in Redmond.
   Judging the pieces were Bill Hoppe from Central Oregon Community College, Coralee Popp of Art Adventure Gallery, and Teresa of Mirror Pond Gallery.
