Young at art

April 5 - April 27

Opening Reception | Friday, April 5, 3:30 - 6:00 PM

Each year area schools send us student artwork to exhibit in our gallery. This lively exhibit is floor to ceiling color and exploration and one of our most well-received shows of the year. This fun community exhibit gives young artists a chance to have their work exhibited in a “real gallery”, and a special chance for arts enthusiasts to show their support for our budding artists. A select number of pieces are chosen to be professionally framed and matted and those pieces will hang in the YMCA for a year after the exhibit. 

We extend our thanks to Beth from Picture Perfect Framing Studio for her framing expertise, and to the Brainerd YMCA for hosting selected artworks.
