The “Creative Works: Young Artists’ Gallery” is an exhibition designed to encourage creative pursuits in children and provide them with an opportunity to showcase their art. The goal of this program is to highlight the many talented children in Utah and nurture their imagination.
Each child may submit one entry. Work needs to have been completed within the past year.
Entries must be original works in the following categories:
- 2D, including painting, drawing, mixed media, collage, photography, printing and graphic arts
- 3D including sculpture, pottery, textile or wood arts, jewelry, mixed media or found objects.
A committee will meet the week of April 8, 2021 to select pieces for the “Creative Works: Young Artist’s Gallery” show. The committee will make their selections based upon originality, artistic merit and creativity. Applicants will be sent an email by April 7, 2021 letting them know if their work has been selected.
All selections will be entered into a lottery for prizes. The top piece in each age range (3-4, 5-7, 8-10, 11-13) will receive a prize.
This year, the fee is pay-what-you-can and will be submitted through Discovery Gateway Children’s Museums donation page. The suggested donation is $10 per application.
- Submit application by April 8, 2021. All applications must contain an image of the artwork. Applications can be submitted via online form or as a paper copy delivered to the museum. Artwork that has the best chance of being accepted are pieces that have been photographed with the best possible lighting, resolution and representation of the completed piece.
- Pieces that are selected for exhibition will require a completed agreement form with the child’s information and signed by the parent/guardian.
- By entering your artwork into this competition, you agree that an image of that artwork can be used across Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum webpage and social media sites.
