Bloomington retail gift store Gather is showcasing artwork from two youth artists in its gallery in honor of Youth Art Month, which is recognized nationally in March.

According to the store’s website, it sells the independent works of more than 250 artists, crafters and makers from the Midwest and beyond.

“Gather is about creating a community around art and the process of art — supporting the makers that create, and illustrating that creation,” the store’s website reads.

The gallery will display the work of a high school student from the Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship, which has been judged by art teacher and Gather artist Cassidy Young, who is known for her Bloomington restaurant postcard scenes.

“Gather is excited to once again host youth artists from our community,” Gather owner Talia Halliday said in an email.

The work of a second grader from Bloomington Montessori School will also be displayed in the gallery.

“His work has graced the walls of Gather before, and is sure to again," Halliday said in an email. " His work is mostly pencil, detailed, and showcases his most intense interests at the moment, which are of course, ever-changing, as any good second grader."

The works will be on display for the entire month of March.
