"Meet Me in the Gallery" starts Friday night, showcasing Michiana teens' art

Some of the world's most famous artists started painting in their teens like Monet, Renoir, and DaVinci.

Friday night is a chance to see what could be the next famous work of art from a Michiana teenager.

It's the annual "Meet Me in The Gallery." It’s sponsored by the South Bend Museum of Art, 88.1 WVPE and the Century Center.

People can view 450 pieces of student art work from Michiana teens grades 7 through 12.

27 judges have sifted through entries that include watercolors, pottery, jewelry, fashion, or sketch work.

The winners will receive their award on Sunday during a ceremony.

For students it’s a chance to go onto a national competition that could lead to a scholarship at many art schools around the country.

“It really is such a great celebration and it’s only this month. It ends on March. People have a limited window to get down here and see what our kids from an 18 county area are managing to create,” says Peg Luecke from the South Bend Museum of Art.

“Meet Me in the Gallery" is Friday night where there will be music and refreshments.

It starts at 5:30 and goes until 9 pm at the Art Museum in the Century Center.

Tickets are 5 dollars while students under 12 get in free.
