CTAC’s Online Exhibit Opportunity for Young Artists

Crooked Tree Arts Center has shared a call for young artists to participate in the upcoming online exhibition “Kids on Community.”

Artists, ages 8 - 18, are invited to submit their artwork for inclusion in the online exhibition based on the theme of “community.” This call is open to all young artists, regardless of where they reside, and all work fitting the theme will be included in the virtual exhibit.

The word "community" can mean a lot of different things, and it can mean different things to different people. For this exhibit, we're asking young artists to tell us what community means to them. Is your community the town you live in? Is it your school? Your church? Your soccer team? Maybe you find community among the people who share your interests, such as art, reading, theatre, music, sports, etc. At CTAC, we find community in so many of the things we do. We find community in the groups of artists who work and learn with us, our business partners and collaborators, and our patrons and art appreciators. We want to see what defines community for you.

Artwork in all media is eligible for entry, including drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, photography, sculpture, jewelry, fibers, video, and more. 

Email your submissions to:

Deadline: Friday, November 6. Be sure to include the student’s name, age, and hometown in your email.

“Kids on Community” will be published virtually on from mid-November through December 2020.

The galleries at CTAC are open during the following business hours to view the current fall exhibits: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For more information about the call for young artists, contact Crooked Tree Arts Center at 231-347-4337 or visit Crooked Tree Arts Center is located at 461 E. Mitchell Street, downtown Petoskey.
