Whitby launches call for youth artists to be featured in 2019 Art Attack event

Youth artists in Whitby have the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents in this year’s Art Attack event being held on Thursday, May 2, 2019.

Art Attack is an annual event held by the Town of Whitby, in partnership with Station Gallery, to celebrate and showcase the creativity of local youth ages 12 to 18.

“From sculpting to painting to poetry, the artistic talents of Whitby youth are incredible,” said Whitby Mayor Don Mitchell. “We look forward to celebrating our talented youth and showcasing their work to the community.”

Interested youth can apply online by Friday, April 5 at whitby.ca/youthevents and submit their art pieces to the Brooklin Community Centre and Library. This year’s artwork submission categories include drawing and painting, sculpture, video and film, photography, fashion and jewellery, as well as two new categories – graffiti and spoken word.

In addition to being showcased at the Art Attack event, the Town and Station Gallery will select multiple pieces that will continue to be exhibited at Station Gallery from April 30 through May 5. Art Attack takes place on May 2 during National Youth Week, which runs May 1 to 7.

Art Attack is presented by the Whitby Youth Council and is part of the Town’s continued commitment as a Platinum Level Youth Friendly Community.
