T.C. Williams Student Art Draws a Crowd

gn2015041301-photo3T.C. Williams High School students saw a rush of support for their artwork on Friday night at the opening reception of the 18th Annual Student Art Exhibition at the Del Ray Artisans gallery.

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.

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.
