On April 2, a reception was held for the Tehachapi Youth Art Contest. This annual contest, sponsored by Tehachapi Valley Arts Association and Gallery 'N' Gifts, invites student artists of all grade levels to submit their artwork to appear in their gallery.

This year, over 60 artists submitted pieces to be judged. The student artwork will be on display through the month of April. Gallery 'N' Gifts, located at 100 W. Tehachapi Blvd., is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

"This year's submissions show incredible talent," said President Gale Caldwell. "It was exciting to see their work. So much creativity and attention to detail. Lots of shadowing, perspective and great composition. It was also really neat to see students submitting pottery and ceramic sculpture pieces."
