Exhibitions of Student Art
The ArtWorks Gallery is devoted to temporary exhibitions of student art, inspired by work on view elsewhere in the Museum. Throughout the year, the Museum juries and hosts themed shows, and guidelines encourage teachers to develop related lesson plans. Instructions for upcoming exhibitions of student art are included below.
Do Good, Make Art
September 25 through November 10, 2018
In connection with the upcoming fall exhibition Views of the South: Photographs from The Do Good Fund, this student exhibition is inspired by the Empty Bowl international project. In an effort to raise awareness of hunger in our area, students are asked to create their interpretations of food insecurity and the importance of community service.
Color and Form
Artwork Due: Friday, November 2, 2018
Inspired by the work of glass artist Lino Tagliapietra on view in the Museum’s galleries, students are asked to explore different techniques and materials that highlight color and form in a powerful way.
Student Art Collection
The Museum has purchased artwork from many of the student art exhibitions held in the ArtWorks Gallery, forming a significant student art collection that spans over 25 years of creative expressions by young artists. Work from the student art collection is on view at various times and places and was included in two recent exhibitions in DC hosted by the Department of Education.

ArtWorks Gallery student exhibitions are sponsored by Regions Bank and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts Junior Executive Board.
