The Young@Art Student Exhibition (formerly known as the Young Masters) started in 1975 for the purpose of giving  the youth in our community a chance to show their art in a public forum. The show is held annually during Youth Art Month (March).  The three week exhibition invites artists as young as one year to high school age, to submit artworks created from their own thoughts, feelings, observations and experiences. A variety of media is displayed, including 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional ceramics, paintings, drawings and mixed media. Download the entry form and information here.  young@art 2018 call for entries

Each fall, CCAA presents Memorial Medical Center’s Complementary Therapy Art Exhibit.  This art group is designed to teach participants to unlock their emotions and ideas, and bring clarity and definition to life experiences by expressing themselves through art. The classes are open to cancer survivors and their caregivers.

Complementary therapies are those that can be used along with conventional medicine therapies that have been proven to be safe and effective.  While complementary therapies are not used to cure disease, many of them have been shown to help relieve patients’ symptoms and improve the quality of their lives by minimizing the side effects of conventional treatments or by providing psychological and physical benefits. Watch more about the program here.
