York County Middle Schools Art Show

York County Middle Schools Art Show Opening Reception May 7, 2017

For the second year, our gallery hosted artwork from the York County Middle Schools. The show ran from May 7 to 28, 2017 with a reception on Sunday May 7th from 2-4 pm.

These older children are bolder in their creative approach to art. You would be amazed at the creativity and originality displayed by 6-8th graders. The Middle School Art Show is a judged show and awards are given out to the top three students in each category along with honorable mentions.

The York County Arts Commission, Virginia Arts Commission and the National Endowment of the Arts support the Yorktown Arts Foundation and On the Hill Gallery in its endeavors to encourage the arts in our community.

Please check back for details on the Fourth Annual York County Middle School Art Show in early 2019!
