Youth art exhibition returns to Lloydminster Museum


Young creatives from the border town are making a comeback at the local museum. The Youth Art Show is the headliner of the exhibition gallery until May 26 with works by artists as young as three years old.

Youthful imagery extends its paintbrush from SpongeBob to canvas galaxies and solar systems that future generations may visit.

Collections co-ordinator Holly Durawa says they started advertising submissions in early April and have 30 pieces of youngsters from Lloydminster.

“There are some really great pieces here from really talented artists. I’m always surprised every year when we do this show with just the ages compared to the talent I see in certain parts.

The show takes place in conjunction with National Youth Arts Week and has been running for about 10 years, with crafts included in the 2022 exhibit.

“This year, we included in the show just a few extra handicrafts for people, just to encourage the show guests to also be creative and show their artistic side alongside our young artists,” says Durawa.

The exhibit is open during museum hours Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The closing reception on May 26 will be a meeting with young talents that is open to the public.
