Teen CounselTeens make programs come alive at The Silver Heron Gallery. Led by gallery owner and executive director, Talley Woodmark, The Teen Council (TC) is a diverse group of Lincoln County teens whose purpose is to provide young people with access to contemporary art and artists. Specifically, the TC's function is to create, organize and design teen-specific events and programs with The Silver Heron Gallery's staff, to aid in marketing existing programs to teens, and to create for young people a sense of ownership at the Silver Heron Gallery.
Who can apply? How can I apply?Any Lincoln County resident between the ages 14-19 can apply. The only requirements are an interest in contemporary art, a sincere desire to reach other teens, and a commitment to regularly attend TC meetings. Members attend a monthly meeting after school at the gallery. TC members occasionally meet on the weekends to finalize programming or to attend a teen event.
Applications are taken in late fall and can be picked up from the Silver Heron Gallery. Check back here for updates.
