Youth Encouragement Program!

Our Youth Encouragement Program starts today!
Deadline September 30, 2009

A Monthly Art Contest!
Philip Hone Gallery is proud to announce our monthly Art Contest for our young adults; ages 10-20. With grand expectations we hope to inspire our youth to creatively use there mind and reach for new mediums and experiences through ART. Each month we will post a new topic.

September: Wisdom

Second, the student should consider which type of medium from painting to sculpting to do their artwork in. All forms of art will be excepted as long as they can provide an artist statement. Accompanying the entry should include the artist statement: a brief paragraph on how your artwork pertains to the topic. Please include all relevant information on the artist statement: name, age, title of work

All artwork must be brought into the Philip Hone Gallery and Artist Statement.
(Framing is only required when it is the winning entry)

Judging will take place the day after, the last day of each month.
We will have a new guest judge, monthly!

The winner will be notified each 5th of the month.
Their exhibit at the Philip Hone Gallery will last until the 5th of the next month.

There will be a monthly award of $25.00 in Art Supplies, Certificate of Achievement, and a prominent space in the Philip Hone Gallery for the full month after until the next winner is announced.
First and second place winners are chosen from each level from the entries received.
The first place winner will need to have their work ready for exhibiting.
Both the first and second place winners will be eligible to have their work chosen for the year end art show.
There is a $5.00 entry fee per artwork entered.

The final winner will receive all the money raised from the entry fees.
All images will be used for publicity and promotion of the Philip Hone Gallery.
We will remain open late on Friday night until 6 pm.
We hope to see a wide spectrum of submissions.
If there are any questions you can go or call the Philip Hone Gallery and ask for Caroline 570-253-5577
