JN Long Cultural Arts Complex (behind HEB in Cleburne) will be hosting a Youth Art Exhibit, March 7 – April 18, 2020. The exhibit will be open to youth from kindergarten to high school seniorsth. Ribbons and prizes will be given in four age groups K – 2nd grade, 3rd – 5th grade Middle School and High School. In addition, the Johnson County Art Guild and Texas Woodcarvers Guild are awarding a $500 scholarship to a Johnson County senior student. The student does not have to major in an art related degree. The monies will be sent directly to the college that the student has been accepted in. Judging for the scholarship will be done by an out of county professional artist. (TBD)
There is no entry fee to participate and each young artist may submit up to three pieces of artwork in any genre; photography, pencil drawings, watercolor, clay art, recycled art or wherever their imaginations take them. Two dimensional artwork should be limited to 36” x 36” and 3 dimensional pieces should be no larger than three feet across and 6 feet high. All artwork should adhere to our policies and be family friendly.
Our exhibits are always open to the public free of charge. Friends and family are encouraged to view the exhibit and vote for their favorites in each category for a People’s Choice Award. 1st through 3rd place winners in each age group will be determined by a panel of judges selected from member art groups at JN Long Cultural Arts Complex, including the Cleburne Camera Club, Johnson County Art Guild and Texas Woodcarvers Guild.
Our mission as a nonprofit organization is to enhance the quality of life in Cleburne and Johnson County by building a strong Cultural Arts Community and increasing public awareness of the arts. We thank you for helping us encourage artistic expression among our youth.
