The Prince George Public Library and the Community Arts Council hosted a very well attended reception on Saturday, April 2 to celebrate a record number of teen art submissions.
The Teen Art Showcase, now in it’s fifth year, distributed five awards at Saturday’s reception held at the Bob Harkins Branch, downtown:
- People’s Choice: Wonder by Conner Pryschlak
- Most Original: Friends by Lily Palmer
- Best Use of Material: Chaotic Clash by Tiana Dickinson
- Best Social Commentary: Toadily Famous by Shayla Swanson
- Best Over All: Wonder by Conner Pryschlak
“We were so pleased that we not only received the largest number of submissions to date, with 33, we also had the most public engagement with over 400 ballots cast for the People’s Choice award,” said Jen Rubadeau, the Prince George Public Library’s Communications and Engagement Manager. “Every submission received votes for the People’s Choice Award which shows the incredible quality, calibre, and variety of submissions. The teens who participated should be extremely proud of their work.”
The goal of the Prince George Public Library and the Community Arts Council’s partnership is to encourage young and emerging artists to showcase their art, connect with peers, and provide learning and engagement opportunities through workshops and events such as the Teen Art Showcase.
