The Spring Teen Art Show for ages 12-15 was Saturday, October 13th. Seventy two pieces of art were submitted from teens around Alachua County. Some exceptional pieces of art including paintings, pencil drawings, photography, short videos, mixed media, and more were submitted. Artists and their families attended a reception and award ceremony Saturday afternoon at the Headquarters Library. All of the artwork was put on display on Saturday and Sunday and patrons could even vote for their favorite.
Five judges from around the community, including art coordinators from the Harn Museum of Art and professors from UF's College of Arts, had the difficult task of awarding the best of the best.
