This year marks the third year in a row of GEPL’s Teen Art Contest! Whether you’re an artist, a friend of an artist, an art fan, or just into fun events and good food, listen up. You can get all the rules and details about the art contest on our website here, so today we’ll just focus on a few things you need to know.
1.) Last year’s winners have their work displayed in our teen room on the second floor, and this year’s winners will replace them in the spring. So hurry in now to see the awesome work your classmates and other local teens did last year, and check it out again this spring or summer to see the new winners.
2.) You can still submit a piece! We are accepting submissions through the end of January, so you still have time to go for it. If you submit, you’ll get a chance to show off your work at a reception, and if you are a winner or runner up, you’ll win a prize in addition to having your piece displayed.
3.) Anyone can come to the reception. If you are an artist, we’ll want your piece to display, and encourage you to invite your friends and family. But even if you aren’t, come to the library on Sunday, February 19, from 2-3:30 and you can see all the amazing work submitted this year, chat with the artists, and enjoy some tasty snacks.
The art contest and reception are perfect opportunities to show off your talent, enjoy some great art work, and beat the winter doldrums by getting out of the house and doing something fun. What else could you ask for?Tags: events, GEPL Teen Scene Art Contest (2016-2017), Hannah Rapp, teens
