Chattanooga's Most Prestigious

Competitive Youth Art Gallery Event!





Presented annually by TVFCU, the Chattanooga Youth Gallery is a juried art gallery event open to all Chattanooga, TN and surrounding regional high school visual art students.  This highly competitive art show consists of a panel of local professionals in the art industry who award discerning students with the opportunity to earn scholarship money and attendance to creative and entrepreneurial workshops to further their knowledge of the art industry as a whole before embarking upon their post high school journey.

“Chattanooga Youth Gallery is encouraging students through art.” Leslie Rankhorn
