Youth Arts Collective presents its Annual Holiday Art Show to be viewed online (visit yacexhibits.com). The show features all new (from within the past six months) YACster art, many from new members of the collective: paintings, pastels, drawings, collages, digital art, ceramics and animations. Every artist has their own subpage with a photo, statement and a short video. Some of them are hilarious, “just like the YACsters themselves,” says Meg Biddle, founder/program director. All are unique. Artist Vanessa Valenzuela Berumen (featured above) from Seaside is a second-year student at CSU East Bay majoring in Art. She’s been with YAC for three years. [AP]
