(Apple Valley)– Every year, the Town of Apple Valley Parks and Recreation Department gives students ages 13 to 18 an opportunity to enter their artwork in a competition to showcase their work. More than 400 entries were received this year, many of which will be on display this Saturday at the annual Teen Art Festival.
“This event keeps getting bigger and better each year,” said Alicia Dannelley, recreation coordinator in charge of the festival. “The quality of the artwork that comes in is outstanding.”
Due to the unexpected and temporary closure of the library where the festival is held each year, the venue will be in the Council Chambers and Town Hall Lobby from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Due to limited space, only art work that received a first through fifth place or honorable mention ribbon will be on display.
The public is invited to view the award winners who entered works in seven categories:
- Drawing (black and white)
- Drawing (color)
- Photography (landscape and still life)
- Photography (people and animals)
- Digital art
