Once again the Carnegie Arts Center in downtown Turlock is presenting its annual youth art exhibition, READY, SET, SHOW! Youth in grades K-12 (ages 5-18) from communities throughout the region share their artwork to the public in the CAC’s Ferrari Gallery. This year, 220 works in a variety of media are on display.

“Having a venue to show the work of school-age artists is an important way to encourage young people in Turlock and the many surrounding communities to be creative. Thanks to support from the Express Yourself! Justin Ferrari Youth Arts Fund we have the resources to make this exhibit a fun, annual event,” said Lisa McDermott, Director, Carnegie Arts Center. “This is the 10th Anniversary of the new Carnegie Arts Center, so celebrations have been going on all year. We started last summer with our street banner contest. Winning art created by local kids has been hanging throughout Downtown Turlock since September.”
