Call for Art Entries for ‘What Inspires You?’— A Community Youth Art Exhibition


The following is a press release issued by the Deep Valley Arts Collective:

The Deep Valley Arts Collective invites youth aged 18 and under to submit artwork to our upcoming youth group exhibition: WHAT INSPIRES YOU? at MEDIUM Art Gallery.

We invite artists aged 18 and under to create a piece of art influenced by the person, thing, or idea that inspires you – a loved one, a walk in nature, a favorite memory, a vision of the future, and more.  Get creative, get messy, and share what’s important to you.  All mediums will be considered. 

All submitted artwork will be included in the online portion of the show on our website. Due to limited gallery space, select artwork juried by the Deep Valley Arts Collective board will be displayed in person. Pieces chosen for in-person display have the option to be listed for sale with no commission fee.

  • No entry fee, limit one entry per artist age 18 and under
  • Work must be 11”x14” or smaller and hang-ready*
  • Deadline for entries: Sunday, March 13th, 2022, 11:59 PM PST
  • Opening reception: Friday, April 1st 2022, 12:00-8:00PM PST
  • The show runs through Sunday, May 22, 2022

  1. Sounds too restrictive. Art in a limited format. But art is healing and the best art comes from troubled minds. The best gardens grow in disturbed soil.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
