Artists & mentors
Exhibition Dates: September 4 - 29, 2018
Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6 - 8 pm
The exhibition Artists & Mentors will feature the works of twelve artists who have been selected by a juried panel from the National Art Education Association over the last four years. Over 200 artists from around the country who are teaching in the junior or senior high schools have applied each year for a two week Residency at the Golden Foundation Residency, supported by Golden Artist Colors. The only stipulation to apply for the Residency is that they have a student who has been recognized by the Alliance of Young Artist and Writers as a Gold Key award winner. All applications are then judged on the quality of the artwork alone. We are delighted to showcase the talent of these artists who have also been recognized as mentors of their young students. Every artist has had the experience of someone who provided encouragement early on in their careers. The most talented of these mentors have also maintained an artistic practice. This exhibition will highlight some of the best of the best amongst these dedicated teachers.
