“10th Annual Youth Art Exhibition” at Phillips’ Mill

JURIED ART EXHIBITION: Kenoka Wagner, an artist from Revere, Pa., will serve as juror of the “10th Annual Youth Art Exhibition.” The exhibition opens at Phillips’ Mill in New Hope, Pa., on January 29 and will be open to the public on weekends from 12 to 4 p.m. through February 19.

The “10th Annual Youth Art Exhibition” debuts at Phillips’ Mill on January 29 and will be open to the public weekends from 12 to 4 p.m. through February 19. After transitioning to online exhibitions during the height of the pandemic, “Youth Art” now returns to in-person shows at the historic Mill on River Road in New Hope, Pa., in addition to offering the event online.

Launched with a handful of schools in 2014, the Youth Art Committee continues to work in harmony with area public and private school art departments with 22 schools participating this year. Art teachers curate the show, selecting students’ work in the disciplines of painting, works on paper, 3D works, photography, and a new category this year, non-photography digital art. A juror chosen by the Mill awards cash prizes in each category, as well as a Best in Show award.

Kenoka Wagner, owner and curator of 2nd Floor Gallery in Revere, Pa., will serve as this year’s juror. Wagner is a mixed media artist, painter, printmaker, and sculptor, giving him a unique perspective to assess the artwork. Born an artist from artist parents, Wagner has a lifetime of art experience from his very first memory in his father’s studio, and his approach to his work is exploratory and full of joy.

All winning entries will be announced at an Awards Ceremony at the Mill on January 28 and posted on the PhillipsMill.org website.

This is no entry fee for students or schools to participate in the Phillips’ Mill “Youth Art Exhibition” and the Mill takes no commission on sales. All proceeds go to the artist. All awards are funded by the generous contributions of Phillips’ Mill supporters. People interested in adding their support can contribute online at phillipsmill.org/art/youth-art-exhibition.

Phillips’ Mill is located at 2619 River Road in New Hope, Pa. For more information, call (215) 862-0582 or visit phillipsmill.org.
