Young Artist Awards

The Barry and Stella Downs Young Artist Awards were established in 2018 to recognize and encourage young artists between the ages of 15 and 21. These awards celebrate artistic talent across a variety of mediums, including oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and ink. By providing a platform for young artists to showcase their work, the awards aim to foster creativity and support the artistic endeavors of the next generation.

A generous first prize of $500 and a second prize of $250 are offered to the most outstanding entries, providing not just financial support but also recognition and validation of the artists' efforts.

The primary objective of the Barry and Stella Downs Young Artist Awards is to inspire young artists to pursue their passion for art with confidence and dedication. By spotlighting their work, the awards help to build their reputations and open doors to future opportunities. In doing so, the awards not only recognize current talent but also contribute to the growth of the art community by nurturing its future leaders. Ultimately, these awards are about more than just prizes; they are about empowering young artists to see their potential and consider art as a viable and rewarding career path.
