6th Annual Student Visual and Video Artist Gallery


The St Charles Arts Council (St. Charles, IL), announces the 2018 Pop Up Art Gallery for student Visual and Video Artists, who are invited to submit their work for jurying.

The St Charles Arts Council’s 6th Annual Student Pop-Up Art Gallery, featuring the work of Student Visual and Video Artists, will run from Saturday, April 21 through Saturday, May 5, opening with the Artist Reception on Friday, April 20 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Student Artists may submit their work electronically to ArtistLiaison@StCharlesArtsCouncil.org.  

The Student Art Gallery will be one of the “stops” in the inaugural Fox River Arts Ramble, a One Day Tour of Art in the Valley, showcasing art from Aurora to Elgin.  The SCAC is proud to include our Student Gallery in this major art event!  Visit foxriverarts.com for more information about the Ramble. 

More information about the gallery and the Pop Up Arts program may be found by visiting the SCAC’s  web site.


FORMAT:  Juried
Entries for the gallery can be in any style or medium of visual art, as well as video.


ONLY work by students currently in grades K – 16, including home-schooled students and students enrolled in extracurricular arts programs are eligible for the show. 

Student Artists must submit their ORIGINAL  ARTWORK electronically to ArtistLiaison@StCharlesArtsCouncil.org.  There is NO FORM to fill out. Simply send an email with the following:


  1. An image* of each piece of ORIGINAL artwork submitted (in the case of video, an electronic location where the work can be viewed) along with the title, the dimensions, the medium, and (if for sale) the selling price.

Please Note: We request no “mass entries” by teachers of the same lesson by multiple students, unless a few entries are notably different interpretations of the lesson.  The SCAC will determine if entries meet this requirement.
