Belmar Library Hosts Exhibition Celebrating Teen Artists

Submit your art by August 25!

Show off your artistic side at Belmar Library’s Teen Art Exhibition! Selected pieces of artwork will be on display September 1 – 30. Teens aged 11-18 can submit up to three pieces of artwork from August 1 – 25 to be considered for the exhibition. All media are accepted including paintings, photography, screen prints, digital artwork and drawings. All pieces must be mounted or otherwise hangable. Ceramics, sculptures and other three-dimensional works will be considered on a case-by-case basis due to space limitations.

The exhibition celebrates the talented teen artists in our community by displaying their work in a public space for the entire month of September. It is a wonderful opportunity for local teens to round out their college portfolios, build connections within their community or to just show off their greatest passions. A closing reception will take place to celebrate these talented teen artists on September 21, where you can learn all about the art on display and the artists who created it.

To enter, please drop off your artwork to the Belmar Library or email images of your submission to Teen Librarian Jayna by August 25. Each submission must include the following information:

  • Artist’s Name
  • Age
  • Grade
  • School
  • Title
  • Medium
  • Dimensions

You will be notified if your artwork is included in the exhibition by no later than August 29. Art must be dropped off at the Belmar Library for installation by August 31.
