Prince George artists wow at fifth annual Teen Art Showcase

'The teens who participated should be extremely proud of their work'

Five young artists are taking home awards after this weekend’s fifth annual Teen Art Showcase.

The Prince George Public Library and the Community Arts Council hosted a reception on Saturday, April 2 to celebrate a record number of teen art submissions to the showcase which is now in its fifth year.

Over 70 people attended the reception and over 400 ballots were cast for the People’s Choice award.

Conner Pryschlak took home the award for People’s Choice and Best Over All for his piece Wonder, Lily Palmer took home the award for Most Original for her piece Friends, Tiana Dickinson took home the award for Best Use of Material for her piece Chaotic Clash, and Shayla Swanson took home the award for Best Social Commentary for her piece Toadily Famous.

“We were so pleased that we not only received the largest number of submissions to date, with 33, we also had the most public engagement with over 400 ballots cast for the People’s Choice award”, said Jen Rubadeau, the Prince George Public Library’s Communications and Engagement Manager.

“Every submission received votes for the People’s Choice Award which shows the incredible quality, calibre, and variety of submissions. The teens who participated should be extremely proud of their work.”

The goal of the Prince George Public Library and the Community Arts Council’s partnership is to encourage young and emerging artists to showcase their art, connect with peers, and provide learning and engagement opportunities through workshops and events such as the Teen Art Showcase.
