Young Artists’ Showcase is a juried, all-media exhibition of artwork created by high school students between 15 and 19 years old residing within 150 miles of the St. Louis Artists’ Guild. The annual Young Artists' Showcase has supported artistically inclined students for over 70 years. We aim to promote a career in the visual arts while providing an opportunity to exhibit in a professional gallery.
