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 for submissions. 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.
Educators: Please encourage students to submit any artwork produced during the pandemic, it does not need to follow a specific prompt. Artwork must be appropriate for all audiences. Our goal is to continue to support visual art students by showcasing their work and acknowledging their creativity, talent and expression. The exhibit is planned as a virtual gallery, initially, with the possibility of an in house exhibit in the summer, to be determined, due to California restriction modifications.
