It is a local, walk in, juried exhibition that offers a $500 scholarship top prize from Emerson. The showcase is open to artists 15-21 years old.
The Columbia Art League Showcase includes work from students all across the state and will be on display until April 7. This is the second year the gallery has hosted this exhibition, and 80 entries were received.
