Artists Council's Third Annual
April 24 - May 12, 2024
Artists Center at the Galen

Dear Art Teachers,

We hope you had a wonderful holiday break. We are so excited that the 2024 Young Artists Exhibition -- with program support provided by Mark Kendrick and La Quinta Arts Foundation -- is about to begin!

Online submissions will open at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, February 2, and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, February 9. As a reminder, each school may submit up to 25 works that address the exhibition theme DREAMS/SUEÑOS. Please refer to the prospectus (click HERE) for detailed information about the exhibition.

Once the submission period ends, exhibition jurors will begin making their selections. All teachers will be notified via email on Wednesday, February 28, which works have been accepted into the Young Artists Exhibition. Accepted artworks will need to be brought to the Artists Center at the Galen in Palm Desert on Wednesday, March 20, and Thursday, March 21, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Information about this process will be shared in a separate email.

We invite you all to join us at the Artists Council Young Artists Exhibition opening reception and awards ceremony on Saturday, April 27, from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at the Artists Center at the Galen. All exhibiting students will receive a Certificate of Recognition, select students will be recognized for additional awards, and all participating teachers will receive a complimentary one-year membership to the Artists Council. We will provide information about the events when it gets closer.
