Hunt for teenage artists

The hunt is on to find teenage artists to contribute to the prestigious Penwith Gallery in St Ives.

A competition has been launched for people aged between 13 and 18 years old to help showcase their talents.

Pool Academy students are invited to submit their best pieces of work before midnight on Sunday, February 24th. Artist Roy Ray will then select his favourite art to be displayed in an exhibition.

Once they are put up on the walls people will then be asked to go and vote for their favourite. There will be a chance to nominate an artwork in two age categories.

Cat Lee, Young Artists Coordinator at St Ives School of Painting, said:We are holding a Cornwall-wide call for entries inviting teenagers to submit their artwork for exhibition.

“It can be anything they’ve made at home or at school and can be anything they are proud of and want to show off.

“Prizes will support them in their artistry and give them exposure as young artists.”

Artwork entries can be 2D and any size. This could include drawings, paintings, photography, mixed media, print-making, videos or textiles.

Students are able to submit up to five pieces of work.
