As a participant in the National Fine Arts Exhibit program, the Boys & Girls Club of Emerald Valley may submit members’ artwork in four age divisions and 10 categories, including watercolor, pastel, oil, acrylic and collage and in Digital Arts they will be competing in design and animation. Selected artwork will be screened at the regional level and a limited number will be sent to BGCA’s Atlanta headquarters for judging at the national level. Thirty-seven national winners will be named and their artwork displayed at special events throughout the year.

Winning artists in the fine arts competition will also receive an engraved plaque and letter of congratulations from BGCA President Roxanne Spillett. Regional finalists will receive a certificate of participation. In digital arts members have the opportunity to win $500 for an activity to be held in their name at their club and teens have the opportunity to win a trip with their family to the national digital arts event held in a prominent city in the United States.

Our kids have been working towards this show for a year and are excited to show the public what they have been creating. They have had the opportunity to work with multiple professors, alumni, and students from the University of Oregon who create both digital and fine art.

Your Photos

YouNews My Roses My Roses
I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
YouNews Private Drone Used to Report Fire Private Drone Used to Report Fire
Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
