"Spring for Art" Exhibit & Competition

The Youth Leadership Council of the Opelousas-St. Landry Chamber of Commerce is hosting the second annual YLC "Spring For Art" exhibit and competition on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Responding to the positive community feedback from the previous year, the YLC council members have chosen to put on this special event in order to showcase the artistic talent that is present in St. Landry Parish's youth. We know that there are many young student-artists who long for others to see their work, so now is the opportunity to display it for all to see! The show is open to the public and is a great opportunity for family, friends, and community members to see the talent the youth in this parish have to offer. Although this is an art competition, we also intend for it to be a learning experience for the artist.
There are seven (7) open categories for entry this year, which include watercolor, acrylics, oil, charcoal, pen and ink, pencil, and photography. One winner will be selected in each category, and will receive a $50 cash prize.

2. Acrylic- 15 entries
