The Fine Arts Department at the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) will hold the first High School Invitational Art Exhibition at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
The exhibition will be on view in the CVPA Campus Gallery on the first floor of the CVPA building at UMass Dartmouth, 285 Old Westport Road, North Dartmouth from March 1 to March 14, 2013. An opening reception for the exhibiting students, their art teachers, the UMass Dartmouth community, and the general public will be held on Saturday, March 2nd, from 2 to 4 pm, where awards will be presented.

The Fine Arts Department is hosting this exhibition to showcase the work of many talented art students in the region. The exhibition recognizes the exceptional merit of high school art students from ten high school art programs in Massachusetts. The participating schools were chosen for the long-term commitment they have demonstrated to art education and the quality of work that comes from their art programs. The art teachers from these high schools were asked to select one to three pieces in any media (drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, printmaking, etc.) from three of their best students to be included in this group exhibition. The result is a truly exciting exhibition that brings together and highlights the talents of these young artists.

The High School Invitational Art Exhibition is sponsored by the Fine Arts Department at CVPA.

The CVPA Campus Gallery is located on the first floor of the Visual and Performing Arts building at UMass Dartmouth, 285 Old Westport Road, North Dartmouth, MA 02747. Visitors are advised to use parking lot 7. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 10 am - 4 pm, Friday 10 am - 3 pm. More information:, or email:
