A Penticton gallery is putting a call out for young artists for their next exhibition.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for young artists to learn about the submission and exhibition process,” said Tumbleweed Collective artist Lyse Deselliers, a lead artist behind the project. “We are really looking forward to seeing the beautiful projects that our talented youth will bring forward.”

The Budding Artist exhibit will be part of the opening reception for Blossom, the latest group show from the Tumbleweed Collective. Deselliers said the theme can be interpreted as widely as you like. Each member artist will also be working to this theme.

“I love working like this,” said artist Jessie Dunlop. “I seem to produce my best work when the scope is narrowed.”

Young artists (ages 16 to 18) are invited to submit their work to be part of an upcoming show at the Tumbleweed Gallery. The winning submissions will be featured alongside new work by the seven artists of the Tumbleweed Collective.
