The ENSELE-Art Gallery of Calabasas uses the slogan "A Unique Gallery Experience" for a reason. With unique themes and charitable events, The ENSELE-Art Gallery is taking yet another plunge to bring together community, culture and support to artists. "But this time, we are calling for our young artists," says Barbara Hollander, Art Director of the fine art gallery of Calabasas.

ENSELE-Art Gallery of Calabasas is calling for all ‘young artists’ for a competition on Positive Graffiti Art. Featured, Award winning artist of NYC, is challenging kids to create ‘Positive Graffiti,’ a series in which SELENE is known for.

The contest will be in two age categories, kids ages from 8-12 and 13-18. Work must be on a 12x12 canvas or paper in any medium. The deadline for young artists’ submissions is July 15th. All work must be dropped off at the Gallery that day. “The Save Our Schools Through the Arts” Gallery Event will be held on Friday, July 29th at the ENSELE-Art Gallery where work will be displayed. Friends, family & the community can bid on young artists work for purchase, and/or place an order for greeting cards of that work. YOU, the viewer, will be the judge to determine the grand prize winner. The winner will be featured in the art gallery for one month. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. A portion of all proceeds from this event will go to T.H.E. Foundation, a new organization to help raise money for the Las Virgenes School District.
