A new exhibit at the Emy Frentz Art Guild aims to help parents and community members talk about the loss of a loved one.

The exhibit, a Celebration of Life, opens Thursday. It showcases seven portraits of children who have died.

Noelle Lawton with the Twin Rivers Council for the Arts says the artists learned the child’s story and sought to make it unique to the child and family.

The exhibit will be open for three weeks.
