Congratulations to all of the winners of the Off the Wall Annual High School Art Competition!
Thank you to Lockheed Martin for generously sponsoring the exhibition. Following the closing of the exhibit at the Center for the Arts, the student art work will be traveling to Lockheed Martin (Manassas) for the month of February. A separate reception will be held for the students, teachers, and family members.
The judges had their work cut out for them this year - with 40 pieces of art on display containing a variety of media and subject matter, it was a close call.

2018 marks our 2nd year of incorporating the category of Art & Technology (inspired by our sponsor, Lockheed Martin). The Art & Technology category consists of 3d printed objects/materials.
1st Place Art & Technology 2018:
Partially Exposed (double ring)(jewelry)
Manassas Park High School
Artist Description: This set of jewelry has a central theme of exposed hexagonal patterns that, from its open pattern, suggests a weak connection, but actually provides a strong bond to each side of the piece. The hexagonal patterns have a volume that is 72% less than a solid piece of metal, but have a surface area that is 25% greater. This provides the pieces with a structure that is strong and material efficient, while also revealing what or whom is behind the jewelry. The see-through pattern is contrasted by the solid band of metal that borders the hexagons, providing a solid wall of material that hides what is behind it.
1st place: Sa’Raye Wynder-Burs, "Inspiration", Woodbridge Senior
2nd place: Rebecca Visger, "A Camel Through the Eye of a Needle", Osbourn
3rd place: Brandon Carter, "Heartbeat", Osbourn
"Inspiration" by Sa'Raye Wynder-Burs, Woodbridge Senior
Inspiration comes from fog
The corners of our mind
Sleeping dormant until
Awakened by our soul
Contained within your heart
Behind those locked doors
Pouring out the keyholes
And underneath the floors.
Some inspiration appears
From objects in our day;
There’s words, lyrics, poems:
Things that people say.
The painters with their brushes
Their muse giving them sight
Guiding their hands to perfection
Brushstrokes kept so light.
Musicians with their instruments,
Playing those sweet tunes
Fingers leap and fly
Leaving you so soothed.
Written words from a poet
Minds are left rattled, dazed
Open but confused,
Everything leaving a feeling.
There lies a poet’s muse
Poetry Honorable Mention:
Jessica Sebenlaer, Woodbridge
Ryan D'Emidio, Woodbridge
