The artwork you see in this show is produced not only from the skills and creativity of the artists themselves, but also by the adults in the community who teach, encourage, and provide time, space, and materials to do so. As you take in the enormous amount of imaginative work in this show, be reminded of the power of art and how our community benefits from supporting young people in their endeavors.
YOUNG ARTISTS’ GALLERY TAKEOVER
March 3 – 30, 2017
Clifford and Corridor Galleries
Opening Reception: Friday, March 3 from 5 to 8 pm
Waterfall Arts appreciates the support of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers for our own youth programs in the clay studio, Teen Art Studio, and the Bridge and Bridge Jr. after school programs. We offer kudos to the local school districts whose art teachers collected student work to share with you, as well.
Now more than ever, we need people of all ages to advocate for the arts in all its forms. We hope this work inspires you to do so!
The Youth & Family Outreach Program is made possible by local business sponsors The Green Store and the Belfast Co-op. Additional support is provided by foundations such as the Kennedy Family Foundation, Morten-Kelly Charitable Trust, the Nellie Leaman Taft Foundation, and the Maine Arts Commission, as well as individual donors.
