For 33 years, the annual National Drawing and Print Competitive Exhibition at Gormley Gallery has provided the community with a glimpse of contemporary artistic practices happening on a national level. Each year an outside juror representing a local museum or arts institution serves as curator for the exhibition, selecting the artworks for the show and awarding a purchase prize to one or more pieces. Those pieces become part of the permanent collection of Notre Dame of Maryland University and are displayed across campus.

FAIRFAX, Va. (WDVM) — Teachers across Fairfax County had the opportunity to showcase their work in the 13th annual Artist Teacher Exhibition. Although this year they went digital, some teachers said this was a breath of fresh air during a critical time. 76 art teachers did not let this year’s digital experience stop them from showcasing their work. The art exhibition recognizes the creativity and technical expertise of all participants.
