The works of high school art students from 34 schools across Massachusetts are on display for UMass Dartmouth’s College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) 4th annual Emerging Young Artists (EYA) Invitational Exhibition. More than 150 art pieces are being showcased at the University’s Campus Gallery through Saturday,February 6, with a closing reception and awards ceremony scheduled at 1-3 p.m. on that Saturday.

UMass Dartmouth’s CVPA is thrilled to host this annual invitational exhibition to showcase the artwork of many of the region's talented art students. The participating schools were invited to be part of the exhibition for the long-term commitment they have demonstrated 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 exhibition that showcases the talents of these young artists.
