Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale Campus is currently showing student, and faculty and staff artwork in its 3rd Annual Art Show. The diverse art pieces are on display in the art gallery in the Richard J. Ernst Community Cultural Center and will be on display through Sept. 27.
This year’s show includes 19 artists showing an array of different art pieces including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, drawings, mixed media and collages. Virginia Pates, assistant dean of art, art history and music, said the art show has grown over the past three years and students, faculty and staff continue to inspire each other through their artwork.
“The artwork is very eclectic. We’ve had everything from travel photography to ceramics in the past,” Pates said. “It’s also interesting to see the importance of art to those who don’t particularly teach or study art.”
A reception for NOVA’s 3rd Annual Art Show is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 2 in the Richard J. Ernst Community Cultural Center. The exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public, and attendees will have the opportunity to speak with the featured artists.
The gallery will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about the 3rd Annual Art Show and upcoming exhibits, contact Pates at 703.323.3496 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
