Artists from seven local high schools will experience what it’s like to show their work in a professional gallery during the Young Artists’ Showcase at the YC Prescott Art Gallery.

The Young Artists’ Showcase, a Juried High School Exhibition, runs from March 10 to April 7, 2023.

This year’s juror, artist and YC instructor Rita Toikka, chose 122 artworks from among nearly 300 submissions. The featured artists come from seven area high schools, including Prescott, Bradshaw Mountain, Chino Valley, Pinnacle, Mayer, and Camp Verde High Schools, as well as the Orme School.
