Under 20 Art Exhibition 2015

The Chait Gallery Downtown — Opening reception Friday, April 17 from 5 – 8 p.m.

The Chait Galleries Downtown will showcase the budding talent of the Iowa City art scene with their Under 20 Art Exhibition 2015, opening this Friday.

Included in the show are artists ranging from six to 18 years old. They work in a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture and jewelry, and all work displayed at the Chait Gallery will be for sale.

Emily Wolfe, the Under 20 show coordinator, is excited for Chait to offer young area artists the opportunity to show their work in a gallery setting.

“For many students, this exhibition will be their first taste of working with an art gallery, and something they may encounter in their future art careers,” said Wolfe. “The showing is designed to showcase the breadth of experience young students are receiving from their art education.”

The exhibition will be judged and juried by a group of local artists, as well as the gallery staff. They will critique each work for its creativity, composition and technique, and during the opening reception this Friday, April 17, awards will be given for various categories including best in show and most creative.

The Under 20 opening is free and open to the public. Artists and students will be in house to discuss their experiences with friends and visitors. The exhibit will be on display at the gallery through May 16.
