You are invited to participate! The Yavapai College Prescott Art Gallery presents the Young Artists Showcase - a juried high school online exhibition. The virtual exhibition provides local high school students with the opportunity to experience the submission and jury process and to present their artwork on the Yavapai College Prescott Art Gallery website, while receiving recognition for their accomplishments from professionals in the field.


Original artwork created by high school students in Yavapai County, within the past year. Students may submit up to two entries for consideration. Artwork can be any media: painting, drawing, collage, jewelry, photography, fiber, clay, metal, paper, ceramics, sculpture, etc.

Covid-19: The Yavapai College Prescott Art Gallery is currently closed to visitors. In the future, during the low risk alerts, the gallery will most likely be open during normal gallery hours Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 3pm. The gallery will not be hosting opening receptions nor the 4th Friday Art walk until further notice.

Juror Carl Dahl

Carl Dahl has been an artist for the last 20 some years; prior to this he held positions as a Senior Financial Analyst, Corporate VP and President of a virtual reality research organization. Although he’s learned, traveled, and experienced great things in these prior positions - art will forever be his passion.


Carl’s formal education includes a BA degree in Philosophy, BS degrees in Finance and CIS, an MBA and a Masters of Fine Arts all at Arizona State University. In these pursuits he has been honored with membership in The Arizona Academy, Beta Gamma Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi. Carl has also had the honor and pleasure of working on grants from the Research Institute for Studies in the Arts, and commissions from Yamanshi University in Japan and the W.P. Carey School of Business.

“As an artist my goals are to achieve excellence in my art and kindness in my dealings with others. As for the art ... this work is an outgrowth of many life experiences and reflections ... growing up in the southwest, finding a broken reproduction of a Greek Sculpture, being around horses and working with a German sculptor at a concrete fabrication plant. These experiences all remain an integral part of my work.”  — Carl Dahl
