2019 Alabama Statewide Student Juried Art Exhibition
The Statewide Student Juried Art Exhibition was a success! Shelby County Arts Council hosted high school students (10th-12th grade; ages 15-18) from across Alabama and the top 54 pieces were selected out of 350 plus entries. The Shelby County Arts Council, in partnership with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Art and Art History and the University of Montevallo Department of Art, presented the 2019 Statewide Student Juried Art Exhibition.
The categories of submissions at this Statewide exhibition included Painting (Oil, Acrylic and Watercolor), Drawing, Photography, 3D Design and Mixed Media. The students did great in expressing themselves through the art work in the various categories.
