Judged by Artist and Corcoran College of Art & Design Associate Faculty member, Joey P. Mánlapaz, Express Yourself! is the gallery’s most ambitious attempt yet to reach out to creative youth from the regional art community. Teens from Prince George’s County, Montgomery County, Fairfax County, Arlington County, Fairfax City, the City of Alexandria and the District of Columbia were invited to submit original artwork in any media for the opportunity to exhibit in a professional gallery space and a chance to win one of three cash awards of $500, $300 and $100.
Winners of the cash awards will be announced at the reception, Saturday, June 30 from 4-7pm, where the teens will have an opportunity to invite their friends and family out to celebrate this rising generation of artists. Teen artists will also have the opportunity to meet with the judge and mingle with the other artists.
