Parents, community members and City of Alexandria officials flocked to see the final works that had been selected for the juried show and purchase some of the artworks which were on sale from $50 to $100.
The paintings, prints and ceramics were chosen for the exhibition by Elsabe Dixon, a faculty member of the George Mason University School of Art. She uses living environments to create art installations.
A silent auction is being held simultaneously at the gallery to benefit the Ted Eichers Scholarship Fund, which awards a $1,000 scholarship each year to a T.C. Williams student who plans to study art in college.
The exhibition runs until April 26 and can be viewed at the Del Ray Artisans gallery, located at 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia.
