Young Artists Showcase

An exhibition of original work by high school artists

* The 2010 YAS was selected “Service Project of the Year” by Optimist International.

The Timonium Optimist Club each year recognizes and encourages talented young artists through an exhibit/competition that crosses school districts. Original, two-dimensional works of art are submitted by high schools – public, parochial and independent – in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. Prizes are awarded in the categories of Photography, Drawing/Graphics and Painting/Mixed Media. All entries are featured in a public exhibit in March, which is Youth Art Month in Maryland.

The venue for the event is the Hereford Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library, which places a special emphasis on the visual arts. The branch has ample wall space on two floors, a state-of-the-art hanging system and a busy flow of visitors to enjoy the art. The location is easily accessible from route I83 and offers free on-site parking.
