It’s springtime and that means a ton of new exhibitions, including high school student shows. Although these student exhibitions are popping up throughout the state, two shows are bound to present some interesting work.

The Goss-Michael Foundation will host the 7th annual Retail as Art, a photography scholarship competition open to high school students in the DFW Metroplex. A charitable initiative started by United Commercial Realty, three winning entrants receive monetary college scholarships, and earn their high schools a donation to its arts/photography department. Lest you think that the sponsors and the theme would just encourage teens’ natural instincts to glorify shopping malls, take a look at some of the past winners. The photos will be on view April 23-25, with winners announced on Saturday evening.

The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston’s Teen Council has been organizing its biannual juried show of teen art long enough that a few of the artists exhibited are now well-known artists. This year, Perspectives 189: From the Margins will open on the evening of May 1 and run through July 19.
