JANUARY 28—FEBRUARY 18, 2024

The Phillips’ Mill Youth Art Exhibition, now in its 11th year, showcases the dynamic artwork of our local high school students. The exhibition will be on display at the historic Mill, weekends, from January 28 to February 18, online at www.phillipsmill.org/art/youth-art-exhibition.

The show features paintings, works on paper, photography, digital art and three-dimensional works created by students from 23 participating schools.  It gives young artists a taste of what it’s like to be a professional artist. 

“We display the students’ art the same way we display the prestigious Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show, so it is very professionally done,” explains Kathy Schroeher, founder and co-chair of the show. “It’s great for the kids to see their work in a beautiful space and professional gallery. It’s different from having it shown at your high school art show. They get the chance to reach a much broader audience, and they can see what the other kids are doing.”

Esteemed artist Mel Leipzig will serve as the show’s awards juror this year. Leipzig’s work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Academy Museum and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City; the New Jersey State Museum; and the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers, among numerous others. As the show’s juror, he will lend his expertise, awarding a number of prizes, including Best in Show.
