Exhibition: Subject Matters – CAE Annual Teen Show

January 12 @ 4:00 pm - February 11 @ 5:00 pm


Subject Matters Teen Art Exhibition
January 12 – February 11, 2023
Reception & Awards Ceremony: Thursday, January 12, 2023, 4 – 7 pm – awards presentation (live and on Zoom) at 6 pm

CAE’s 2023 Teen Exhibition includes 57 pieces of 2D and 3D artworks selected from nearly 200 submissions by 13- to 18-year-old artists from across the Denver metro area. With 17 middle and high schools represented in the exhibit from 6 school districts, this year’s show is our broadest-reaching yet. $500 in total prize money will be awarded to the top 3 selections, as determined by CAE’s Teen Council, which was also responsible for the curation of the show. Most artworks are for sale, however, several are destined for portfolios bound for professional art schools and universities. This exhibition is curated by the Center for the Arts Evergreen’s Teen Arts Council with help from CAE staff and CAE’s Curatorial Committee. The exhibit will be on display in the CAE gallery through February 11, 2023.




2023 marks the third year for Center for the Arts Evergreen’s annual teen show. We’ve dealt with separation and uncertainty, reuniting and rebuilding, and now, we’re focusing on inspiration. Center for the Arts Evergreen’s (CAE) teen exhibition, Subject Matters, seeks artwork that is influenced by the person, thing, or idea that inspires you the most—a loved one, an adventure in nature, a favorite memory, a vision of the future. This show will serve as a platform for others to celebrate today’s teenagers through their art and inspiration.

Subject Matters: Teen Exhibition welcomes students of ages 13-18, in public, private, or home school to enter one piece of original artwork. There is no entry fee for this competition and there are several cash awards given. This exhibition will be curated by the Center for the Arts Evergreen’s Teen Arts Council with help from CAE staff and CAE’s Curatorial Committee.

Center for the Arts Evergreen is a registered nonprofit located in Evergreen, Colorado. In 2022, the CAE Teen Show hung in the gallery and then started a year-long trek through the Denver Metro area. Highlights included Children’s Hospital of Colorado and the Ralph L. Carr Justice Center in Denver. CAE strives to foster a positive, creative environment in which young and emerging artists realize their full potential as creative individuals. We provide quality art instruction, exhibitions, and events. Our main gallery showcases local and nationally acclaimed artists in both curated and juried exhibitions.
