The Alexandria All City High School Art Exhibition hosted by the Convergence Arts Initiative returns February 7th – March 28th 2020 for its fifth and most inspiring year yet. 2020’s experience will feature over ninety Alexandria high school students representing six high schools including public, private, and independent spanning over ten different mediums of art. Returning for 2020’s collaborative event are students from Bishop Ireton, Episcopal High School, T.C. Williams, St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, Commonwealth Academy, and The Howard Gardner School.

Each year, these exhibits are overwhelmingly successful in bringing together students and faculty from the city of Alexandria’s high schools for a friendly and collaborative event focused around the arts. This one of kind exhibit continues to recognize, encourage, and celebrate the creative pursuits of the visual arts students and teachers within our community.

The All City high school student artists participate in all aspects of the exhibition from submitting a call, framing, installation of the exhibit, to speaking about their work. The exhibition features a diverse display of artwork in a variety of media. Over ninety students will participate in this year’s exhibition juried by professional artists Karen Swenholt, Guy Jones, and Brian Kelley. Special top acknowledgement will be awarded in each medium: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media, digital design, ceramics, sculpture, fibers, and film.
