Young Artists Display Works in "Conundrum" Exhibit
Local high school students have been busy putting paint to canvas and artistically snapping photos.
Come visit the Johns Hopkins University Montgomery County Campus to see the work of our budding artists and photographers at the campus’s sixth annual student art show.
This winter, hundreds of parents, students and community residents gathered for the opening of the exhibit called “Conundrum,” which will be on display through April 5 in the Hopkins 9605 lobby. The highlight of the show was an art contest open to local high school students.
Nine students won prizes for their original art and photography work.
This year’s annual juried exhibition of mixed media artwork showcased more than 80 works from the 250 entries, including photographs.
Giving local high school students an opportunity to display their art on campus is just one way JHU encourages the community to be involved on the Montgomery County Campus. Visitors also are welcome to stop by campus to view the art exhibit.
“The exhibit is a great showcase of the hard work and creativity of Montgomery County art students, and we appreciate the opportunity to be a part of it,” said Shel Spangle, studio art teacher at Sherwood High School. “I am very proud of all of our participating students, and I was especially pleased to be there to see Hanchu Wang accept her award.”
