Annual Juried Youth Art Show

The Annual Juried Youth Art Show is one of the most eagerly anticipated exhibitions in the galleries each year.  The collaborative event involves art teachers who serve as jurors in selecting the best art work from area private, independent, and public schools in Augusta County, Staunton, and Waynesboro.  Students are honored to have their work displayed in such a professional, beautiful venue.  thumbnail_dad%27s-hands%2c-handbuilt-clay-by-shannon-shifflet%2c-12th-grade%2c-fort-defiance-h-sCongratulations to them and to their teachers!  Thank you to exhibit sponsors Susan and C.K.
