Fall Teen Art Show Wrap-up

The Fall Teen Art Show for ages 12-15 was Saturday, October 19th. Thirty-eight pieces were submitted from teens around Alachua County. Some exceptional pieces of art including paintings, pencil drawings, photography, 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.
