CALL FOR ART from Union & Essex County High School Students
Gallery U in Westfield is celebrating the artistic talents of local high school students with a special exhibition in June 2014 called “Student Life” that will feature the artwork of high school students from Union and Essex Counties. We are seeking artwork of all mediums and styles. This event will serve as a fundraiser for local high school art departments. For each piece that sells during the exhibition, 50% of the retail price will be paid to the artist and the remaining 50% will be donated to the art department of the school that artist represents. An opening reception is scheduled for June 5, 2014 and will be open to the public. For submission guidelines please click on the STUDENT LIFE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES to your right. SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPT UNTIL MAY 12, 2014.
To further celebrate the creative talents of high school students, Gallery U will be highlighting the literary achievements of Union and Essex County high school students in June at our monthly reading series Poetry U. This public reading is scheduled for June 26. Students who are poets and/or creative writers and are interested in participating in the event should send two sample writings to Robert Langdon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
