Event Description

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.

I was looking out my back window, when I saw this deer. First it smelled one of our plants, then it walked up to the hummingbird feeder and smelled the flowers on it.
