2022 Senior High School Juried Art Exhibit

On Exhibit January 30 – February 13, 2022

Opening Reception/Awards Ceremony: Sunday, January 30 from 2-4 PM

Yocum Institute for Arts Education is pleased to host the 2022 Annual Senior High School Juried Art Exhibit. The Opening Reception & Award Ceremony will be held on Sunday, January 30, 2022 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. The exhibit will open January 30, 2022 and will run until February 13, 2022.

Each year, the Yocum Institute for Arts Education welcomes aspiring young artists from Berks County to submit their work for a juried exhibit to be held at the Yocum Institute. This provides students with an opportunity to present their original works of art to the public in a professional gallery setting as well as compete for cash prizes and tuition to Institute classes.

The competition is open to all full-time Senior High school students that reside in or attend school in Berks County. The original work presented will feature oil, watercolor, mixed media, acrylic paint, sculpture, and 3D art.

The exhibit will be judged by this year’s Coggins Award Recipient, Amanda Lee Condict. The Coggins Award recognizes artists who embrace the values Jack Coggins exhibited: creativity, innovation, and service to the Yocum Institute and the community. The recipient is chosen from nominations submitted by members of the artistic community.

Amanda Lee Condict has studied at Kutztown University, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Empire State College. An illustrator and designer, she has always worked in graphic arts and publishing, first as an illustrator for a department store, then as art director of a monthly magazine and finally as the owner of a graphic design and illustration studio. She has illustrated for books, magazines and catalogs, created t-shirt and textile designs and done commissioned portraits. Amanda teaches in the fashion department at Albright College; operates Vincent van BYO, a painting party studio; and paints murals, mostly as community projects with area schools. She was a forensic sketch artist on an episode of “The Dead Files,” and serves on several area arts committees including Berks Art Alliance, Clay on Main, Berks Arts Council’s Roundtable, and as an administrator of the Sketching Workshop, an international organization of artists. She has shown her work at various local galleries, and has also curated and had artwork in “The Female Gaze,” which has shown in various galleries in Pennsylvania.
