Entry forms for the popular Zonta Youth Art Awards are now available at the Ashburton Art Gallery. This year marks the 16th Annual Exhibition of artworks from the youth of Mid and South Canterbury and the Ashburton Art Gallery staff are waiting with great anticipation to view this year’s entries Simone Barnsdale Public Programmes Coordinator/Technician of the Ashburton Art Gallery, states “The Gallery feels fortunate to be able to support the Zonta club of Ashburton in their endeavours to promote excellence in youth art and we are curious to view the diverse range of works that will come in this year”.

The Zonta Youth Art Awards promotes and supports creativity within our community, by encouraging the youth of Mid and South Canterbury to express themselves artistically through the use of different mediums. This exhibition offers the ideal opportunity for the applicants to experience the process of exhibiting artwork, and to have the chance to receive recognition and encouragement for their artistic achievements. It is also an incredible opportunity for students who desire to pursue the field of fine arts at a tertiary level.

All entries should be delivered to the Ashburton Art Gallery by Friday 7 March 4:00pm and be accompanied by a copy of the completed and signed entry form.
