Artwork from local teenagers is being shared with the public.
Visitors of the Caton Merchant Family Gallery, 9419 Battle Street in Manassas, will find pieces created by more than 30 high school students until January 14.
They are included in the Off the Wall exhibit that’s hosted by the Center for the Arts, according to a release from Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS).
“The Off the Wall art contest is a wonderful opportunity that enables students to think outside the box,” Jasmine Hawkins, administrative coordinator of the Arts Program in the PWCS Office of Student Learning, said in a release. “Students who participate receive a real-world gallery experience; their artwork is displayed at the Center for the Arts, and they are invited to participate in an artist reception. This exciting contest allows our students to experience the life of an artist for themselves.”
Selected students will receive awards at an open house that’s taking place from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
After the exhibit, the pieces can be viewed at Lockheed Martin, 9500 Godwin Drive #106 in Manassas.
The following students were chosen for the exhibit:
