Young creatives in the Border City are making a comeback to the local museum. The Youth Art Show is headlining the display gallery until May 26th featuring pieces from artists as young as three-years old.
The youthful imagery spreads its paint brush from SpongeBob to canvas the galaxies and solar systems that future generations might visit.
Holly Durawa, collections coordinator says they started advertising for submissions in early April and have 30 pieces from Lloydminster youth.
“There’s some really lovely great pieces in here from really talented artists. I’m always surprised every year when we do this show with just the ages compared to the talent that I see in some of the pieces.”
The show is held in conjunction with National Youth Arts Week and has been going on for about 10 years, with crafts included in the 2022 exhibit.
“This year we included in the show just some additional crafts for people to do, just to encourage guests to the show to also be creative and showcase their artistic side alongside our youth artists,” says Durawa.
The show is open during museum hours Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The closing reception on May 26th will be a meet and greet with the young talent which is open to the public.
