The annual APS Metro Youth Art Exhibit, featuring more than 550 works of high school and middle school students, starts Friday and runs through April 8.

The public is invited to visit the gallery at Building M of the Albuquerque Public Schools Lincoln Complex, 912 Oak SE, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on two Saturdays, March 23 and March 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

bright spotParking is available at nearby Milne Stadium. Visitors can follow the signs to the Unified Arts Library.

The exhibit is professionally judged – with artwork and projects in 18 different categories – and sponsored by the APS Fine Arts Department.

The jurors are artists and educators with expertise in their particular category, school officials said in a news release.

Also, a few advanced art students serve as jurors to pick one piece in each category for a Students’ Choice Award. Ribbons will be given for first through third place in each category, plus honorable mentions. One student will receive a $1,000 scholarship from the UNM College of Fine Arts, organizers said.

There also will be some cash awards and gift certificates.

The City of Albuquerque Public Arts Program buys several pieces from the show that become part of the city’s permanent public art collection. Bernalillo County also picks a few works for its permanent collection.

We welcome suggestions for the daily Bright Spot. Send to newsroom@abqjournal.com.
