York County Middle Schools Art Show



For the second time in our gallery, we are hosting artwork from all the Middle Schools in York County. The show runs 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 will be amazed at the creativity and originality coming from grades 6-8. The work hung and displayed the same as in a professional gallery. The Middle School Art Show is a judged show and awards were given out the top three in their categories along with honorable mentions.

The show is located at On the Hill Gallery, 402 Main Street in Historic Yorktown, and is open Tuesday through Sunday. 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.
