The 27th Young Adults’ Exhibition

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 7th, 6-8pm

Hera Gallery is pleased host the 27th Biennial Young Adults’ Exhibition. Hera is happy to once again have the opportunity to serve our community by presenting an outstanding art exhibit that celebrates the young artists of our community. This three week long exhibition will showcase the limitless range of technique and creative expression of our local young artists. We invite the public to join us Saturday, February 7th from 6:00 to 8:00pm for the opening reception of the Young Adults’ Exhibition. Phil’s Main Street Grille of Wakefield will provide food and refreshments for the opening reception.

The Young Adults’ Exhibition features High School students throughout the state, offering young artists a unique opportunity to present their original artwork to the community in a professional gallery setting.  Over 200 public and private schooled students will be participating in the exhibition. The exhibition will feature drawings, paintings, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and more. This year’s postcard features the winner of our postcard competition, Nina Gardner, senior student of South Kingstown High School. The piece is entitled Row, Row, Row Your Boat and takes inspiration from the tsumami in Japan. Further awards will be selected by Krzysztof Mathews, a working artist and first VP of Art League Rhode Island.

This year we will feature work from South Kingstown High School, Chariho High School, Exeter West Greenwich High School, La Salle Academy, The Lincoln School, Moses Brown School, the Met School, North Kingstown High School, Narragansett High School, and Rogers High School. 

These programs are presented with partial support from The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, South County Art Supply, Bank RI, Phil’s Main Street Grille, Hera Educational Foundation, and The Friends of Hera.
