RMAA 41st Annual Young Artist Expo

For 40 years, the Ringwood Manor Association of the Arts (RMAA) has been hosting our annual Young Artist Expo at the Carriage Barn Gallery in Ringwood State Park. Unfortunately, in 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus, this is not possible.

We still like to support our Young Artists and see what they have been creating this year, so we are moving online. Although we do not expect the hundreds of entries that are usually delivered to the gallery from our hardworking teachers. We hope our student artists will enter from the comfort of their homes. (Teachers are still welcome to enter on their behalf.)

Any Young Artist, (Grades 4-12) can submit photos of their artwork at NO CHARGE.

You do not have to have participated in a previous expo or live locally.

The entry period runs through June 14, 2020.


Judged Awards
Once all entries are received, our Judge will then choose a Best in Show and Awards for each grade.

  • The Best in Show will be awarded $100, in memory of Pat Levendusky.
  • 1st Place Grade Level winners will receive either a gift card or art supplies.
  • All winners will receive an RMAA Award Certificate.
  • Additional prizes of art supplies will be awarded in Grades 4-8.
  • One award per student.
This is the same process we have used in previous years for the gallery show.


Viewer's Choice Awards
Additionally, this year we have added Viewer's Choice Awards. Artists are asked to have their friends, relatives, and co-workers go to the contest website and vote for their artwork. Votes are $1 each. The top 3 vote getters will receive gift cards to Jerry's Artarama and an RMAA Award certificate. Gift cards will be awarded as follows:

  • 1st Place- $75 Jerry's Artarama e-Gift Card
  • 2nd Place- $50 Jerry's Artarama e-Gift Card
  • 3rd Place- $25 Jerry's Artarama e-Gift Card

We hope, if you can, you will help support our Young Artists and the RMAA. All Donations collected through the voting process will be used solely to fund this, and hopefully future, Young Artist Expos and student awards.

Winner's will be announced on June 17th, 2020.

This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State council on the Arts.
