FSVAA is looking for student artists for High School Art Show – The Vacaville Reporter

Whether taking introductory or advanced art courses, high school students have likely created at least one piece of which they are very proud.

Again, they will have a place to showcase their work. The Fairfield-Suisun City Visual Arts Association (FSVAA) invites all Solano County high school students to submit their work to the Downtown Solano Gallery for the annual FSVAA High School Student Art Show.

Now in its sixth year, the juried show will give young people across the county a chance to showcase their work in a venue that is usually reserved for seasoned adult artists. Categories this year include oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel/drawing, sculpture/assemblage, mixed media/collage, color photography, black and white photography, computer or digital art, textile/textile art, printmaking, jewelry and video/other.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place as well as an honorable mention prize which will be awarded at the discretion of the jurors. A separate President’s Award will be presented which will include a free one-year membership in the FSVAA.

Admission to the show is 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on February 26 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on February 27. Works can be submitted by students or teachers. The show itself runs March 2-26 at the Solano Town Center Gallery, 1350 Travis Blvd., Fairfield. The gallery is located on the upper level next to the AT&T store. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
