Remotely Creative – Virtual – 2021 Student Curated Exhibition

Our Annual Student Show, presented with Justin Siena Visual Arts and Arts Council Napa Valley, is live for online viewing. Voting for the “People’s Choice Award” is now underway! Scroll down through the gallery, then vote at the end.

The 5th Annual Student Juried Visual Art Exhibition sponsored by Napa Valley Museum Yountville with Justin-Siena Visual arts and Art Council Napa Valley, is open in our virtual gallery. The theme is open ended, it is meant to give voice to students during a challenging year, in a world where social distancing, masks, and zoom remote learning have been the new normal.  In coping with pain, loss, loneliness and anxiety, there is still a drive to express ourselves, to make art as a form of communication. To this end, teachers and students showed great creativity and flexibility. Art is a valuable path of self-expression. Often a way to cope with unspoken feelings but also to celebrate resilience, success and joy.
