After a successful first year, Blue Print Gallery (the art-focused offshoot of Blue Print Interiors) hosted its second annual Young Artists Exhibition on Thursday, showcasing works by 90 students hailing from Booker T. Washington, The Episcopal School of Dallas, Fort Worth Country Day, St. Marks and many more.

In a new addition to the event, two participants were awarded $1,500 scholarships, determined by art consultant Jennifer Klos, art advisor Lysey Provost and Kit Sawers, president of Klyde Warren Park. In keeping with the intimidatingly-talented-high-schoolers theme, singer-songwriter Val Mooty (Jerry Jones’ great grandnephew and a senior at ESD who just released a new album in. June) served as the evening’s entertainment.

Blue Print has long been synonymous with stellar artwork. After five female designers and friends opened the blue doors of a stately, historic home in Uptown’s Fairmount District 10 years ago, they added Lauren Zogg as their gallery director, who works to outfit each elegantly (but approachably) appointed room with contemporary works, often by local artists. The collective aesthetic is striking and memorable. It’s not unheard of to hear, “This is so Blue Print.”

Now, the friends are able to extend that community of creativity to a younger Dallas set, whose ceramics, paintings, photography and mixed media works will be on display (some will even be available to purchase) at Blue Print Gallery through this Sunday.
