TVAA Youth Art Contest winners


April 13, 2024

The celebration of young artists at Gallery N' Gifts on April 6 was a grand event. People from several nearby cities came to see what our local youth were up to creatively, and they were not disappointed. Watercolors, sculptures, acrylic, oils, pen, pencil and mixed media artwork were on colorful display in this annual event sponsored by Tehachapi Valley Arts Association.

"It is so fun to see what these talented kids come up with each April, and even more fun to watch the artistic growth of the students who participate year after year," said President Gale Caldwell. "We hope the event will continue to grow."

The student artwork will be on display through the month of April at Gallery N' Gift,s located at 110 W. Tehachapi Blvd. The store is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
