2019 Young Artists Gallery Takeover

Waterfall Arts is proud to celebrate Art Advocacy Month by showcasing the work of young creatives in Waldo County for a 4th year. These artists range in age from preschool to high school.  We put the artists in the driver’s seat and ask THEM to choose “their masterpiece.”

March 1 – 29, 2019
Clifford and Corridor Galleries
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1 from 5 to 7 pm

Waldo County artists in K-12th grades (or equivalent) are invited to submit work that is ready to hang and no larger than 2’x3′. Drop off dates are February 20-22 from 10:00AM – 5:00PM. 

The artwork you will 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, be reminded of the power of art and how our community benefits from supporting young people in their endeavors.

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 collect 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 exhibition inspires you to do so!

The Young Artists Gallery Takeover exhibition is organized by the Youth & Family Outreach (YFO) program at Waterfall Arts. YFO is made possible by local business sponsors Little River Veterinary Hospital, Bangor Savings Bank, and the Green Store. Additional support is provided by foundations such as the Maine Arts Commission, as well as individual donors.
