East and West Kootenay Juried Youth Art Exhibition
East and West Kootenay Juried Youth Art Exhibition, Wayfinding: Identity and the Kootenays is a professional multimedia exhibition comprised of 5 East and West Kootenay youth ages 18-29. In asking youth to respond to the themed call, we are asking them to consider their identity as young Kootenay artists in a political, historical, or geographical context. Young artists will respond to the theme in an innovative manner, from the framework of their own practice and interests. The goal of the exhibition is to encourage East and West Kootenay youth to pursue their artistic talents and interests, and those of their peers in a professional and meaningful way that can be celebrated by the community at large.
