Northern Daughters is accepting submissions for an exhibit of artwork from artists under the age of 18 to raise funds for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes. NODA will be accepting 100 pieces until Feb. 17, from artists under the age of 18. Submissions should be 8- x 10-inches or 12- x 16-inches; each artist may submit up to three pieces.
The show will be on view from March 1-10, with an opening reception on Thursday, March 2, from 4-7 p.m. Artwork will be available for purchase via silent auction during the opening reception. Proceeds from the sale of paintings will be split between the artists and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Vergennes.
The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Vergennes mission is “To inspire and enable all young people to reach their full potential as caring, productive, and responsible citizens.” Founded in 1999, the club offers a variety of free programs for youth from fourth-12th grades in Vergennes, Addison, Panton, Waltham and Ferrisburgh communities.
“Northern Daughters invitation to host a Youth Art Gallery will help boost the amazing talent that we have in our community,” commented the club’s CEO Alicia Grangent. “The chance to showcase youth art work in a gallery is an incredible opportunity for the kids.”
“One of our goals is for the gallery to be a welcoming space for everyone — including kids. I am excited about this exhibit because we will be able to invite younger artists into Northern Daughters and show that their creations are valued too,” said gallerist Sophie Pickens.
