April 21 – May 19, 2023 | opening awards reception Sunday, April 21, 1 – 3 pm


Get ready to see what our area high-schoolers have been up to in their visual arts departments this year! Museum visitors look forward every year to seeing the amazingly creative and skillful work that makes up this diverse and vibrant annual exhibition juried by Curator Liz Miller and Education Coordinators Jayme Carlson and Colin Riebe. After a full week of jurying at all participating high schools in Horry and Georgetown Counties, as well as a viewing visit with our area homeschool high school students, jurors widdle down the hundreds of submissions to the best of the best for exhibition. All art media, including painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, fiber and more , are accepted. This extraordinary opportunity for teenage art students helps them to gain professional experience in the Museum exhibition process. This year, exhibiting artist and 2D Visual Arts Instructor at the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities (Greenville), Paul Yanko, will judge the art. Yanko holds a MFA in Painting from Kent State University (OH) and a BFA in Illustration/Graphic Design from the Cleveland Institute of Art (OH). As a full-time faculty member of the Governor’s School since 2004, he has participated in solo and group exhibitions on both the national and regional level. His work is in personal and public collections, including the Greenville County Museum of Art and the Medical University of South Carolina. His solo exhibition will take place September 12 – December 15, 2024 here at the Art Museum in Myrtle Beach.
