Oceanside CA— As participants in the BGCA National Fine Arts Program the Boys and Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) will hold its 2nd Annual local fine arts competition. Over 1,400 members learned about different art mediums in our after-school program and had the opportunity to submit pieces to the competition. Submissions were collected from the Club’s 9 sites and judged by local community members and art experts.
The art show will feature 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in four age divisions and 10 categories, including watercolor, pastel, oil, acrylic and collage. After the show the Club will submit the 1st place winner’s to compete in the regional fine arts competition where last year, our very own Oceanside youth, Brittany Espinoza won the Pacific Region Competition and competed nationally. The Pacific Region includes Clubs from Arizona, California, Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Washington, Hawaii, Utah and Japan.
The aspiring youth’s artwork will be on display and refreshments served at the Fine Arts Gallery which opens to the public on January 29, 2015, 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
