2023 Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition

March 4th – March 25th, 2023
Awards Ceremony & Opening Reception – March 4th, 2-5pm
Gallery Aferro Main and Memorial Gallery

Gallery Aferro proudly welcomes the 2023 Gold Key winners of the annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards to honor them and their amazing artwork in an exhibition crafted to encourage, inspire and celebrate. A group exhibition unique to our community, the Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition will feature works from more than 10 different art categories created by students from grades 7 through 12 — all of whom are Gold Key winners.

From digital art to fashion to animation to drawing & illustration, more than 500 Northern New Jersey students will receive 2023 Scholastic Art Awards for their work this year. Gold Key, Silver Key, and American Vision award winners will receive their keys, and Scholastic Art Awards winning teachers will receive commemorative badges during the exhibition opening on Saturday, March 4th.

While this is not a traditional ceremony, Gallery Aferro invites everyone to appreciate all the art created by these brilliant artistic minds while enjoying food, music and camaraderie with an arts community that continues to thrive even during times of great change.

For many of the young creatives, this will be the first time seeing their artwork in a professional gallery, but we are certain it won’t be their last.
