Young In Art

Gallery for Young in Art

The Young in Art Exhibition commenced in 1955 and was originally a sub section of the Hunters Hill Art Exhibition. Young in Art was devoted to the display of art from school children in the Municipality. However, lack of sufficient space to properly display the ‘Youth Art’ became an increasing problem, and, since 1992, separate annual exhibitions have been organised.

Young in Art is a combined exhibition and competition with artwork submitted from every school in the Hunters Hill local government area in addition to Gladesville Public School, which borders Hunters Hill but is located in the City of Ryde. The exhibition aims to encourage and celebrate the pursuit of the arts by local students.

Young in Art is always a fabulous showcase of locally trained talent, and a tribute to the passion and hard work of the students and art teachers across all eight schools, including: 

  • Villa Maria Parish School
  • Riverside Girls High School
  • Gladesville Public School
  • Boronia Park Public School
  • Marist Sisters College
  • Hunters Hill High School
  • Hunters Hill Public School

The annual exhibition runs over 4 days and is typically held in October of each year. Shortlisted works are selected by teachers with independent judging taking place to award category prize winners. The exhibition is held in the Hunters Hill Town Hall with an opening night. The exhibition then runs over several days to ensure that all families and friends can wonder through the exhibition and enjoy the artistic talent of local school students.
