Art Opportunity

Hampton Roads Student Gallery

For over 30 years Student Gallery has provided students in 11th and 12th grade the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in leading museums and institutions in the Hampton Roads Region of Virginia. Students participate annually through teacher and school administrator solicitation.

A panel of knowledgeable art professionals are hired to act as un-biased jurors to review student work.  These experts select 6 student Finalists and 20 Honorees whose work receives placement in Hampton Roads art institutions, which include the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk and the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art in Virginia Beach.

A true community partnership, the project brings fine arts administrators and teachers from the public school districts, as well as leaders and volunteers from museums and art centers, together to produce Student Gallery. The art show provides one-of-a-kind, teachable moments for both art practitioners and students and is the premier regional High School Art Show for Hampton Roads schools.
