Exhibition Description

We’ve all heard the phrase looks can be deceiving but for this Youth Art Exhibition we’re bringing it to life! Students are asked to create artwork that tricks the eye and demonstrates the use of texture using any 2D medium and any subject matter. This can be any texture from soft or smooth to rough or fluffy. Students can even use multiple textures in the same artwork! Everything has a texture, so the possibilities are endless!

Tamarack Youth Art Gallery is seeking 2D artworks that demonstrate texture in any medium from West Virginia students, grades K-12. All work must be ready to hang. Unframed and matted work will be fixed to the wall with an adhesive so consider this when preparing your work for hanging. Protect your artwork accordingly.  Each student may enter up to 6 artworks for consideration.
