The Colborne Art Gallery is pleased to announce a call for entries for the Second Annual Northumberland Youth Art Exhibition. All Northumberland youth in grades 6, 7, and 8 are invited to submit one original piece of art work to the show. All entries will be shown and there is no juried process. Entries will be accepted until 19 May 2017 at 4 pm.
The original idea for the youth art exhibition came from Zoe Bergeron. Frustrated with the lack of space for youth to show their art, Zoe approached The Colborne Art Gallery. The gallery’s curator, Jillian Roos-Markowitz, was immediately taken by the idea. Space was set aside and in 2016 the first Northumberland Youth Art Exhibition was held at The Colborne Art Gallery.
An opening reception will be held 27 May 2017 at 2 PM at the gallery and the exhibition will run from 27 May until 18 June 2017.
Artwork may be dropped off at The Colborne Art Gallery, 51 King Street East, Colborne, Ontario, Thursday to Sunday between 12 pm and 4pm. The deadline for receipt of art is May 19.
To arrange a drop off or pick up of artwork at different times or locations, please contact Rod Bergeron.
