The Young Artists Showcase is one of the Hunterdon Art Museum’s longest running programs, having started more than 25 years ago. The showcase has encouraged many students to enjoy the arts throughout their adult lives; some have even gone on to pursue professional careers in the arts.

Each year, the Museum invites elementary, middle and high schools throughout Hunterdon County to participate in a series of exhibitions of outstanding student work. From January through June, art teachers from each school select the work that will hang in our gallery. Every two weeks the shows change and we invite the students, families and their friends to an opening reception to honor the students and teachers.

This program is made possible by a gift in memory of Berda Rittenhouse, an art educator and Hunterdon Art Museum trustee. Our new hanging system was partially paid for by Telecom Pioneers Chapter 99 and Ms. Jacqueline Gunn which has allowed for the artwork to be showcased. This program is also made possible by funds from the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission.

Refreshments for opening reception refreshments are graciously donated by ShopRite of Clinton, who have supported our program for many years. We also would like to thank our volunteers who assist every other week with installing the artwork and helping out at the opening receptions.
