Spring Teen Art Show (Ages 16-19)

Teen Art Show with abstract design

This year’s Spring Teen Art Show for ages 16-19 was another wonderful success. Twenty-seven teens from around Alachua County submitted 69 pieces of extraordinary artwork. Judges, including professional artists from The Gainesville Fine Arts Association and curators from The Harn came together with the difficult task of assigning awards. Even though all artists will receive a Certificate of Participation, the winning artists will also receive sketchbooks and other various art supplies. All artwork can be seen on the library’s Flickr page. Congratulations to all of the talented participants, without further ado, the winners are…
