“This show gets more impressive every year,” said Sherri Fisher, BCPS coordinator of visual arts. “The skills and ideas that students presented through their artwork are tremendous. Juried exhibitions such as this provide a real-world experience for our students. Professionals in the field adjudicate works on the exhibition criteria. In a juried exhibition, the artwork along with its statement have to stand on their own.”

The exhibit closes on Monday, June 10. Many of the works are available for sale. For more information, contact the Office of Visual Arts at 443-809-4030.

The exhibit was made possible with the support of Azrael, Franz, Schwab, Lipowitz & Solter, LLC, and the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences, Baltimore County Public Schools, the Baltimore Watercolor Society, and Goucher College.
