2019 Youth Art Show
Crooked Tree Arts Center
April 13th - May 11
An invitational exhibition, “Here and There” considers themes of place in time through three unique bodies of photographic work. Cameras have long been used to capture and preserve the world around us; the artists included in this exhibition photograph their surroundings in order to tell unique, personal, and unexpected narratives. Topics such as privacy, technology, beauty, and the environment are explored in this exhibition through images of varied landscapes.Artwork created by Char-Em ISD and home school students, Kindergarten through Grade 12, will be on display during the Youth Arts Festival.
