The 2016 Banner Project and the Young Artist Award submissions have been on display at the Doris Crowston Gallery in the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre since December 2. This coming Saturday, December 19 marks both the end of the exhibit and the award ceremonies for both projects. The events will be held at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, at the corner of Trail and Medusa in Sechelt.

At 12:30pm, December 19, Sechelt Mayor Bruce Milne along with Banner project sponsor Neil Clayton, from Clayton Heritage Market, will be handing out the awards for the 20 selects for the 2016 Banner Project.  The theme for 2016: “The Sunshine Coast – The Way it Was”. Entries were received from: Gibsons Elementary School, Kinikinnick Elementary School, Langdale Elementary School, L’Ecole du Pacifique; Madeira Park Elementary School, Nest Nature School, Roberts Creek Elementary School and West Sechelt Elementary School.

At 2:30pm, December 19, the Young Artist Awards for 2015 will be awarded. A jury of professional artists assessed the works of 33 young artists ranging in age from 5-17 years of age who submitted in total over 100 works. All work submitted must have been created outside of school hours. At the awards ceremony the jurors offer their criteria to all of the participating artists.  Awards have been made possible by the kind support of the Sechelt Rotary, Gibsons School of the Arts & Opus, Framing and Art Supplies.

Please come and support your local up and coming young artists.  Check out both the Banner Project and Young Artists Awards on our website:
