Young Artists Exhibition

Artwork Pickup + Reception: Saturday April 13, 2024 NOON – 2PM

Submission Deadline: March 9th @ 4PM

We are delighted to support young artists in our community, and proud to continue the annual Young Artists Exhibition, which was initiated in 1988. Entries often include paintings, drawings, mixed-media, and 3-dimensional work. Over the years, we have seen participants in these exhibitions go on to higher education and careers in the arts. All artists receive a small gift encouraging their continued creativity, as well as feedback and encouragement from a panel of working artists on the Coast. 

This year we are introducing a new theme to inspire our local youth: The Salish Sea. 

What does the Salish Sea mean to you? What can you find in the deep sea, on the shoreline, on the surface? If the Salish Sea told you a story, what would it be? How do we connect with the sea? 

Come by the Arts Centre to pick up a FREE mini art kit* if you would like a little inspiration for your themed submission! *limited quantities available

SCAC thanks our generous sponsors: The Painted Lady Art Supplies and Sechelt Rotary Club for their ongoing support of the Young Artists Exhibition.
