Young at Art is our 13th annual exhibition of children’s artwork, when area students from kindgergarten through 8th grade have their work on display in the professional setting of the Harlow Gallery. Each year we invite art teachers from elementary and middle schools from throughout the greater Augusta area to select their best student art to showcase in this wonderful celebration of talented young artists and of the importance of arts in education.
Please join us in celebrating the youngest artists in our community — families with children especially encouraged to attend!
On view February 20 – March 19, 2016 at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water Street, Hallowell.
Opening Saturday, February 20 from 10am – 4pm.
