More than 100 works from Massachusetts high school art students on display at UMass Dartmouth Campus Gallery

Emerging young artists display work at College of Visual & Performing Arts Gallery during 2015 Invitational Exhibition

UMass Dartmouth's College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) will present the Emerging Young Artists 2015 Invitational Exhibition at the Campus Gallery, located on the main campus of UMass Dartmouth, from January 26 to February 7, 2015. UMass Dartmouth's CVPA is thrilled to host this third annual high school invitational exhibition to showcase the work of many of the region's talented art students.

Students from more than 25 Massachusetts high schools were invited to be part of the exhibition. Schools were chosen based on their long-term commitment to art education and for the quality of work that comes from their art programs. The art teachers from these high schools were asked to select artwork in any media (drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, film, video, printmaking, graphic design etc.) from their best students to be included in this group exhibition. The result is a marvelous exhibit that showcases the talents of these young artists. More than 100 works will be on display.

An opening reception for the exhibiting young artists, their art teachers, the UMass Dartmouth community, and the general public will be held on Saturday, February 7, at 2 p.m., with an awards presentation at 3:30 p.m., at the Gallery.
