The Nepenthe Gallery in the Hollin Hall Shopping Center opened their doors again this summer to highlight some up-and-coming student artists from around the country in their "2023 Student Art Anthology,” highlighting a variety of student art.
There were students from as far as California and others from schools in Fairfax County and Alexandria taking part in the event.
"It's encouraging them to continue with their artistic talent," said Carolyn Johnson at Nepenthe. The student art was selected by Nepenthe curators Beth Hamed and Patty Owens and will be up until Aug. 1.
Nepenthe co-hosted this student event with Renée C. Gage Photography in Fort Hunt. Nepenthe is a Greek term for “a place of no sorrow,” and they opened a little over one year ago.
