Youth Art Show Entries Sought

A Youth Art Show will be held on Saturday, September 20, at 225 Main St., Susquehanna during the annual Harvest of the Arts. The show will be open to the public from 10-5. The six public school districts in Susquehanna County have been invited to participate.

Young, talented artists will be given the opportunity to display their work along with other young artisans. It is hopeful that all interested two- and three-dimensional artists will present their work. Work should be framed for hanging or be backed so it could stand on its own. There is no charge for entry into this show.

If the young artist is interested in selling his/her art work, a suggested price should be indicated. The artist will set the price and therefore guarantee him/herself a minimum of 50% of that amount. As with the Adult Art Auction, 50% of the sale will go to the student and 50% would go into a fund to promote the arts in Susquehanna County – awards or promotions that would benefit the arts. If a work of art is sold, the HOTA committee will accept cash or check and after accounting is completed, a check will be sent to the young artist by mail, in a timely fashion.

If you are interested in participating in this event or have any questions, contact Youth Art Show chairman, Barbara J. Gallagher at (570) 756-2726 or Alice Deutsch at or 756-2044.

Entries are requested by September 17. Work will be picked up at the Administrative Office in each school district by a committee member, and will be returned to the same location within a week following the art show.
