Youth Art Show

The Carnegie Arts Center announces the Fourth Annual

Youth Art Exhibition: Ready, Set, Show! June 1 – July 1, 2018

 Turlock, CA – A unique exhibition will be on view this summer at the Carnegie Arts Center in Downtown Turlock.  Youth in grades K-12 (ages 5-18) are invited to present their creative work to the public in the Carnegie’s Ferrari Gallery, a museum-quality exhibition space. Entries will be received from Thursday, May 24 to Sunday, May 27, during Carnegie open hours (see below).

Entries are limited to a maximum of three per student.  Complete details are available on the Call for Entries page of the Carnegie’s website (

“This will be our fourth exhibition of works by school-age artists. With the establishment of the Marian Ciriscioli Youth Arts Fund in 2015 we have the resources to make this exhibit a fun annual event,” said Lisa McDermott, Director, Carnegie Arts Center. “We think it is important to do something that is encouraging to young artists in Turlock and the many surrounding communities.”

In order to engage young artists, a hands-on station will be available in the gallery while the show is on view. McDermott adds, “When parents bring their kids in to see the exhibit they’ll have the opportunity to make some art right then and there! When they see art made by other children their age, they may want to try it too, so we’ll have some of the tools and materials in place for experimentation.”
