The Micro Art Gallery program at the Brambleton Library is a special initiative that awards Loudoun County teens a solo exhibition of their artworks within a dedicated gallery space in Brambleton Library. According to Troy Wingard, the Teen Services Assistant at the Brambleton Library, “The program’s premise is that teen applicants are more likely to create a series of smaller-sized artworks that better fits into their busy schedules and lifestyles. To help simplify the submission process, we have created an online exhibition proposal form that allows teens to upload images of their artworks, including a brief artist statement about their imagery, from the convenience of their smartphones.” The form is located here.
“These teen artists experience self-confidence and pride in seeing their artwork curated to professional standards, as seen in major art galleries and famous museums, within our institution that sees tens of thousands of visitors each month,” says Wingard.
The Micro Gallery is expanding beyond 2 dimensional artworks. Says Wingard, “We are always asking for teens to submit their artworks. Recently, we have expanded our program to allow for the display of tiny sculptural artworks, as well as recorded performances of music, singing, animation, and creative videos.”
Again, teen artists in Loudoun County who wish to participate, may submit work here.
