Young Masters is currently on hiatus following the COVID-19 closures. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions while we work to bring this program back. Thank you!

Young Masters is an annual juried exhibition that provides youth in Mariposa an opportunity to express their ideas, narratives, and inspirations with their community through their own pieces of original visual artwork and offers gallery guests the chance to view the world from our children’s perspective. Youth are invited to respond to annual themes and show their work in a public exhibition at the Treetop Gallery.
