24th Annual Children's Juried Art Exhibition

Curated by Monica Schraiber Otero

Each year, the Watchung Arts Center holds a juried art competition for children, ages 6-17. The 24th Annual Children’s Juried Art Exhibition was on display in our Studio from October 23 through Novermber 30. The exhibit recognizes the budding talents and creative potential of young artists.  The mission of the show is to encourage artistic development in children by providing an opportunity for the display and appreciation of their work outside home and school.  The WAC therefore, hopes to encourage the support of instructors, schools, and parents in our communities to promote student’s participation in this exciting event.

The opening reception on Sunday, October 23 was very well attended. Relatives and friends admired the children's work and were mesmerized by the quality of the pieces created in such mediums as acrylic, oil, pen, pencil, watercolor, pastel, tempera,polymer clay and mixed media. The entries were judged by local artist, Virginia Carroll, and awards and prizes were given in five different categories.
