Local Students’ Art on Display

Eight local high schools are represented at “Color Me …,” a juried exhibition of artork from Montgomery County high school students. The exhibit includes artworkd by Lisa Ou, a Thomas Wootton High School student, and Erica Ham, a Potomac student attending the MCPS Visual Art Center at Albert Einstein High School in Kensington.

A specially selected exhibition of artwork from elementary and middle school students with special needs will also be on display in the “Color Me Too” exhibit.

Johns Hopkins Montgomery County hosts a Grand Opening Reception for the two exhibits at 9601 Medical Center Drive, Rockville on Thursday, Feb. 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The exhibits will run until March 30.

In conjunction with the art exhibit, Johns Hopkins ran a writing contest. The winning entries include “Ebb and Flow in Dreams,” a poem by St. Andrew’s Episcopal School student Jillian Voss, and “Color Me Izzle,” non-fiction by Winston Churchill High School student Jessica Reback. These winning entries will be read during the Grand Opening Reception and will be on display as part of the exhibit. The exhibit’s Best in Show, second, and third prize winners, as well as two Honorable Mention recipients, will be announced during the evening’s program.
