Artist at work

Thirty-two PWCS high school students are among those taking part in the 16th Off the Wall exhibit of juried works in the categories of visual art, poetry, wearable art, and art and technology. The Center for the Arts of Greater Manassas/Prince William County hosts the exhibit at the Caton Merchant Family Gallery, 9419 Battle Street, Manassas. The exhibit will be open through January 14, with an open house event held on January 4, from 2–4 p.m.  
 
“The Off the Wall art contest is a wonderful opportunity that enables students to think outside the box,” said Jasmine Hawkins, administrative coordinator of the Arts Program in the PWCS Office of Student Learning. “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.”  
 
Awards will be presented to artists during the open house and students participating in the wearable art category will have an opportunity to show off their creations.  
 
When the exhibit ends, the works of art will be on display at the Lockheed Martin Manassas location.  
 
Congratulations to these PWCS students selected for the 2020 Off the Wall exhibit.
