Student art on display in March

SUWANEE -- The hard work of artistic students from all over the school district will be on display throughout the month of March at the Instructional Support Center.

Officials with the Gwinnett County Public School system are inviting parents and community members to experience a student exhibition entitled "Tapestry," a long-running tradition with the district.

Robert Andrews, GCPS director of fine arts, said it's the "time to shine for students."

Andrews said art at the event, which has been held every year since 1980, "covers the spectrum. Anyone I've ever spoken to that's attended it has been overwhelmed by the volume and quality."

In recognition of Youth Art Month, hundreds of pieces of art will be on display during the following dates:

-- March 1-7, participating schools in the Central Gwinnett Cluster, Collins Hill, Dacula, Duluth, Mill Creek, South Gwinnett and Phoenix High. An opening reception is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. March 5.

-- March 10-15, participating schools in the Grayson Cluster, Lanier, Mountain View, North Gwinnett, Parkview, Peachtree Ridge, Shiloh, GIVE Center East, GIVE Center West, Grayson High Technical Education Program and Oakland Meadow School. An opening reception is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. March 13.

-- March 20-25, participating schools in the Archer Cluster, Berkmar, Brookwood, Meadowcreek, Norcross and Gwinnett School of Math, Science and Technology. An opening ceremony is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. March 20.

Exhibit hours are from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the week; 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The Instructional Support Center is located at 437 Old Peachtree Road NW, Suwanee. For more information, visit www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us.

The student art exhibit is one more example that supports GCPS' outstanding teachers and students. It amazes me every year. Wish every tax payer would go up to the ISC to see what the leaders of tomorrow are doing with their art. They communicate in so many ways that we are going to be in great hands with this upcoming generation...much better hands than we have provided. They are optimistic, forward thinking, progressive and don't look at the world through black and white. They are of the human race and their art shows it!Congrats art teachers and students!
