NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) — Vermont's Norwich University is going to be hosting a juried high school art show.

The university's School of Architecture and Art will present the second-annual show, which will be on display at the Chaplin Hall Gallery Monday from Jan. 27 through Feb. 9.

It will feature the work of 56 young artists from 16 Vermont and New Hampshire high schools. The size of the show more than doubled this year, with more than 200 submissions.

There will be 105 works of art on display.

Norwich Art Professor Jason Galligan-Baldwin says they feel they can make a difference for young students by giving them the opportunity to submit work for review and then display those chosen pieces outside of their schools.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
