WCPS Middle and High School Students Featured in University System of Maryland at Hagerstown Art Exhibit

Hagerstown, MD: The artwork of many middle and high school students from Washington County Pubic Schools (WCPS) will be featured in February and March in a juried show at the University System of Maryland of Hagerstown's (USMH) library. The exhibit is called, "Currents: Trends for Young Visual Arts," and features acrylics, oils, pencil drawings, photography, sculptures and watercolors.
Representatives from the Washington County Arts Council and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts will judge the artwork in advance of an awards reception on Friday, February 20, 2009 from 6-8pm. Award categories include two-dimensional media, photography and sculpture for both middle and high school students, along with a Best of Show honor.
The community is welcome to visit the USMH library on West Washington Street in downtown Hagerstown to see the work of these talented student artists.
