Nearly 20 North Bay artists’ work will be on view in the INSPIRE exhibit at Youth in Arts.

The show explores the connections between teaching artists’ professional work and the ideas they share with their students.

Why do artists teach? How is the work they inspire in their students reflected in their own art? How are they inspired by their students’ work in return?

INSPIRE considers just that. The show opens at the Youth in Arts gallery on Dec.13 with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m., coinciding with the 2nd Friday art walk in San Rafael.

This is the only Youth in Arts show that features work by adults in the kid-focused gallery. There are richly textured paintings, mixed media works, a solar plate etching, a fortune cookie sculpture and more. Admission is always free.
