This year’s Young at Art is the 30th Annual Juried Art Show for local artists 55 and up. Sponsored by Senior Services of Alexandria (SSA) and Goodwin House, and hosted once again by the Durant Arts Center, Young at Art will feature works by local artists–amateurs, teachers, and professionals–in a variety of mediums, including oil and acrylics as well as digital composition, fiber and mixed media.
For those interested in entering pieces to be considered, the application can be found 2016 YAA Materials – Artists Application. There is a $20 entry fee for up to three works, with a $5 fee for each additional piece. Cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place entries, as determined by the jury. Artists must deliver their works, leave them in the exhibit until the end of the show, and pick them up upon the exhibit’s completion.
Selected pieces will be exhibited at the Durant Arts Center from October 6th-November 17th. There will be a reception and presentation of awards on Thursday, October 20th, from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm.
