VERO BEACH — The 26th annual Indian River County Student Juried Exhibition opens at the Vero Beach Museum of Art on Saturday, April 30 and continues through May 29 in the Museum’s Studio Gallery in the Hazel Education Wing. Admission to this exhibition is free.
The exhibition features works of art created by Indian River County public and private middle and high school students under the capable leadership of area art educators.
The exhibition is made possible through the generosity of Presenting Sponsors Jim and Alvina Balog.
Each Indian River County art teacher selects their students’ most highly accomplished works to enter into this juried exhibition. Participating students are eligible to earn awards for their works of art. First Place through Third Place honors will be awarded in each of four categories: painting, drawing/mixed media, photography/digital arts, and three-dimensional.
Best of Show awards for both a middle school and a high school entry will also be determined. The exhibition will be judged by Linda Waugaman, Visual Arts Director at Indian River State College.
An awards ceremony, open to friends, family, and VBMA members, will be presented at 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 30 in the Museum’s Leonhardt Auditorium.
Student exhibition hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4:30 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 4:30 pm.
