Youth Community Project’s Annual Silent Auction

in the Nicholson Gallery



This month The ArtsCenter is hosting Youth Community Project’s Silent Art Auction. Art students from local high schools will be auctioned with proceeds going towards art supplies for high schools and YCP’s Mission.  This event promotes community awareness of the accomplishments of some of our talented teen citizens.  Come see the fine artwork our youth are creating!


Mission:   The Youth Community Project is dedicated to establishing youth-created spaces where teens ages 14-19 can gather with their peers.  We work to provide environments in Carrboro and Chapel Hill where young people can pursue their healthy desires for socializing, creative expression, self-determination, and collective empowerment.  We support youth to develop skills that instill self-esteem, build mutually supportive relationships, and work to achieve their highest aspirations.


YCP understands that the voices of all the community’s youth is essential to this enterprise. We ensure responsiveness to the needs of the area’s teens, facilitating the expression and actualization of their diverse voices and desires, in spaces that will encourage collaboration and experiences that will help create productive relationships among these rising citizens, who will be sharing the future together.

Opening Reception: Friday, April 8th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit and silent auction will run until April 30.

Students and Teacher: Works in Clay from ArtsCenter Kids’ Classes

in The ArtsCenter’s Corridor


Jason Abide has assembled a show of sculpture along with wheel thrown and handbuilt pottery created by kids in his ArtsCenter classes (along with some of his own work). Many of the kids have taken classes from Jason for upwards of five years and have chosen areas of special interest that they have excelled in. Watching their creativity and talent develop is one of the highlights of teaching, Jason and the ArtsCenter are proud to present the fruits of their labor.


Opening Reception:  Friday, April 8th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display April 1-30.
