The All City High School Art Exhibition hosted by the Convergence Arts Initiative returns February 2 – March 10, 2018 for its third and most exciting year so far. This year’s expanded event features over ninety Alexandria high school students and will welcome two additional schools to its juried exhibition; Commonwealth Academy and The Howard Gardner School. Returning for 2018’s collaborative event are students from Bishop Ireton, Episcopal High School, T.C. Williams, St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School. Each year, these exhibits are overwhelmingly successful in bringing together students and faculty from Alexandria’s city’s high schools for a friendly and collaborative event focused around the arts. This year, the exhibition expands to six participating Alexandria high schools and will continue 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 to framing and hanging 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 Allison Nance and Lisa Schumaier. Prizes will be awarded in painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media, digital design, ceramics, and sculpture.
