Presented by the ENMU Department of Art and the ENMU Runnels Gallery, K through ENMU is an annual spring event in celebration of National Youth Art Month in March. The juried exhibition is free to enter and open to public, private or homeschooled students in kindergarten through their senior year of college that are within 200 miles of Eastern New Mexico University, Portales, New Mexico.

We encourage art educators to get involved by encouraging their students to enter work in this fun and exciting juried exhibition. Selected artwork from each grade will be on display in the Runnels Gallery and a public reception and awards ceremony will be held in honor of all those artists selected for exhibition.

The exhibition is juried by a panel of art educators and art enthusiasts. The panel will choose up to four works per grade level for inclusion in the exhibition, as well as first, second and third place for each division and an overall Best of Show chosen from the entire body of work submitted. Divisions include:

  • Elementary Division (Kindergarten-4th Grade)
  • Middle/Junior High School Division (5th Grade-8th Grade)
  • High School Division (9th Grade-12th Grade)
  • College Division (Freshmen-Graduate)

Prizes for Best of Show, second place and third place will be awarded.
