Teen artists can get their work - paintings, sculptures, etc. - in the public eye this coming month.
The second annual Teen Art Showcase is a partnership between the Community Arts Council (CAC) and the Prince George Public Library (PGPL) to help aspiring visual creators get the experience, attention and inspiration they deserve.
Any teen who lives in the city or regional district is invited to submit now for the upcoming exhibition.
"Each artist can submit one piece in any medium of their choice. Artists should prepare their pieces for exhibition and determine if they'd like to sell their pieces," said a joint statement from the two organizations.
Lisa Redpath, program manager for the CAC, is available to advise artists on preparing and pricing their pieces.
The pieces must be dropped off at Studio 2880 (located at 2880 15th Ave.) during open hours between now and
Jan. 31 and the art will be displayed throughout the month of February at the Bob Harkins Branch of the PGPL.
Cash prizes will be awarded in the following categories: Most Original, Best Use of Materials, People's Choice, Best Overall and Social Commentary.
The prizes will be awarded at the Artist Celebration on Feb. 23 at the Bob Harkins Branch. Prizes and the Artist Celebration were made possible by support from the Prince George Community Foundation and the Kiwanis Club of Prince George.
