JOSEPH — School-aged kids are invited to show their artwork next month at the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture in Joseph during the annual Wallowa Valley Youth Arts Festival.

The exhibit will be May 14-21. Entries should be submitted at the Josephy Center 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 9-11, according to a press release.

Children in kindergarten through the sixth grade can show one piece of artwork. Youths in grades seven through high school can show two pieces.

Matting supplies and ideas include a do-it-yourself option. Central Copy in Enterprise has poster board for matting and offers free cutting to all entrants in the exhibit. The shop also has foam board for sale that must be cut to size. Misty’s Uptown Art and Aspen Grove Gallery offer a professional touch with matting.

No frame is required for the entries, but a firm back is requested for hanging purposes.
