CHILDREN’S JURIED ART SHOW 2012
Watchung, NJ (December 2012) – The Watchung Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening of the Members Juried Art Show and the 20th Annual Children’s Juried Art Show. The Members Show is open to all current members of the Watchung Arts Center and the Children’s Show is open to NJ residents ages 4 – 17 years of age. The Show was originally scheduled for December but due to Hurricane Sandy it was pushed back to January.
A time honored tradition is once again returning to the WAC this December. WAC announces the Call to Artist Members for the Annual Members Juried Art Show. As a juried Art Exhibition, the 1st place winner will be awarded a solo show in the Lower Gallery during the month of December 2013.
Past seasons’ winners brought a wonderful variety of art to grace the walls of the Center and showcase the strong eclectic mix and exceptional talents of our members.
In addition, the WAC Studio will host the 21th Annual Children’s Juried Art Show during the month of December for students ages 4 – 17. The goal of this exhibition is to recognize budding talents, creative potential and to encourage artistic development in children by providing an opportunity for the display and appreciation of their work outside home and school. The WAC therefore, hopes to encourage the support of instructors, schools, and parents in our communities to promote student’s participation in this exciting event. This is a unique opportunity for family members to exhibit their work at the same time! The Art Reception for the Children’s Show will take place in the Studio prior to the Members Show and will feature awards and light refreshments.
