The FCPS Fine Arts Office is proud to partner with the Workhouse Arts Center to organize an exhibition showcasing the talents and artistic achievements of these artist-teachers. This year, 41 artist-teachers will be represented by 50 artworks in the exhibition. These artworks were selected from over 200 submissions by juror Sarah Eckhardt, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. The public opening reception will be held on December 14 from 6:00 to 9:00pm. The gallery will be open Wednesday - Sunday, from 11:00am - 6:00pm.
