HALLOWELL, ME – The 13th annual Young at Art 2016 exhibition of children’s artwork will be on display at Harlow Gallery from February 20 to March 19, located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell, Maine. In this exhibition area students from kindergarten through 8th grade have their work on display in the professional setting of the Harlow Gallery. Each year the Gallery invites art teachers from elementary and middle schools from throughout the greater Augusta area to select their best student art to showcase in this wonderful celebration of talented young artists and of the importance of arts in education.
The public is invited to celebrate the youngest artists in our community — families with children are especially encouraged to attend. Young at Art will be on view at Harlow Gallery from February 20 – March 19, 2016 with an opening reception on Saturday, February 20 from 10am – 4pm.
