Join us on Saturday, June 25 at 4 pm for opening remarks to celebrate the opening of Being in the World, works from the Youth Art Mentorship Program at the Art Gallery of Peterborough.

This exhibition is the culmination of the Youth Art Mentorship Program (YAM), which began in Fall 2021 to provide a unique and unparalleled opportunity for youth artists to gain hands-on experience and insights supporting their future careers in the arts.

Selected by a jury of arts professionals, these young artists worked with mentor Spencer J. Harrison to produce an exhibition that speaks to the process of navigating being. In Spencer’s words, “Working with artists at this stage in their careers is fantastic; they are unencumbered by the art world around them and make honest work interpreting their worlds. These young artists each made very different artwork that really reveals how they see and understand their surroundings. I believe they will teach us and change the world.”
