About the Show

-A sampling of entries will on display at the Headquarters Library from March 4 - March 29, 2017.

-Works are grouped into two judging categories: Grades 9-10 and Grades 11-12.

-Artwork will be judged prior to the opening. Local artist Linda Warshaw will judge the Grades 11-12 category, and participants in grades 11-12 will judge Grades 9-10. The student judges develop critical evaluation skills by judging the work of younger participants.

-Artists in each category compete for first place, second place, third place, and honorable mention.

-The two artists who receive first place in their categories will be given their own show in the Atrium the following December.

-For more information, please call Youth Services at 540-372-1144.

The library is proud to have established this unique opportunity for local students—the chance to exhibit their work as professional artists. It’s not uncommon for library customers to be interested in purchasing teen art or to commission new work.

Artists with Influence

Teen artists have more than talent. They have influence—influence that can change their community for the better. Central Rappahannock Regional Library gives art show participants the option of sharing their talent to improve the lives of needy families in our area by beautifying their homes with artwork.

LoisAnn's Hope House provides a safe haven for homeless mothers and their children residing in the region who want to learn the life skills needed to become self-sufficient. As they do so, our donated artwork will be placed in their homes.

While art show participants are certainly not required to donate their artwork to LoisAnn's Hope House, we make donating as simple as possible for those who would like to do so. To donate your artwork, simply leave it at the library after April 18, and we will deliver it to LoisAnn's Hope House for you.
