As spring arrives, so does the artwork! We in Youth Services always look forward to this time of year when the weather becomes nicer and we have the privilege of seeing the work of so many local talented artists. We had an amazing and thrilling turn out this year for our 17th Annual Teen Art Show. Once again, local artist Johnny Johnson honored us by judging grades 11-12, and the artists from grades 11-12 judged grades 9-10.
This year also saw the introduction of "Artists with Influence," a chance for our amazing teen artists to give back to the community. In this case, teens have the opportunity to donate their art to Hope House, which provides a safe haven for homeless mothers and their children residing in the Central Rappahannock region who want to learn the life skills needed to become self-sufficient. As they do so, our donated artwork will be placed in their homes.
The exhibit will be available from March 3 - March 26, in the Headquarters Theater and Atrium for public viewing during regular library hours, except when programs are scheduled in the theater.
On to the winners!
