Boys & Girls Club’s “Points of Youth” on Display Through April 18th
If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Lower Lobby Gallery, be sure to visit this month for “Points of Youth,” a multimedia exhibition created in conjunction with the student artists of Boys & Girls Club, Lawrence. An impressive array of paintings, ceramics, digital works, and more are currently on display, with all artwork, framing, and marketing undertaken by the students themselves. Many pieces have already sold, and all profits go directly to student artists!
2019 USD 497 Exhibition
In April, we’re celebrating even more youth art with our annual USD 497 Exhibition. Our galleries will be overflowing with work from Lawrence public school students in grades K-12, promising to spotlight the amazing young talent in our community. The opening reception will be held on Final Friday, April 26th. Visit the reception for the announcement of the 2019 Vanguard Awards at 6:15 PM, selections from visiting jurors honoring outstanding 2D and 3D artists and art mentors in our local school district.
