An exhibition celebrating the talent and creativity of young people from across Scotland will take place at Maryhill Burgh Halls in Glasgow later this month, as part of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018.
The free exhibition will be opened on Saturday 24 November by award-winning Scottish artist, Jacqueline Donachie, and it will be open to the public on both Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November from 1 – 4pm.
Celebrate ART is a project developed by young people and five partner organisations – Engage Scotland (the National Association for Gallery Education), The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, The John Byrne Award, Templar Arts & Leisure Centre in Tarbert, Argyll, and Tramway in Glasgow.
Through Celebrate ART groups of young people have worked with artists at partner venues to co-produce a series of artworks. The exhibition will be the first time that the young people from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Tarbert and beyond have exhibited their artwork together.
“Congratulations to all the young people involved on their tremendous achievements – we hope that they enjoy presenting their work to the public, an exciting moment in every artist’s career”.
Amanda Catto, Head of Visual Arts
Artwork produced by young people from all three gallery partners involved will be on show, including a performance developed by the young people working with the Fruitmarket Gallery.
