An art exhibit featuring an array of works from students to the most advanced artists opens to the public Tuesday.
Every piece submitted has been included, and it's giving anyone a chance to have their art in a community show.
The Charlottesville in 2 Dimensions, or C2D, art show, is now set up and ready for public viewing. Organizers say you'll get to see Charlottesville through the eyes of artists.
The art represents all talents, media types, and ages. The 100 pieces of work on display is by students ranging from elementary to college age, as well as adult amateurs and professionals.
The theme is two dimensional art representing water.
"It's really interesting because you get to see art at all stages and ages, the children hang with the professionals," said Nancy Jo Krueger, the C2D Art Show chair. "When we have a theme like water this year you can see some really nice photographs. When you tell children it's a water theme, you get water bottles with fish in them and it's really fun to see the juxtaposition," she said.
While the artwork is hanging and available for public view starting on Tuesday, an opening reception will be held Friday at 5:30 p.m. at the McGuffey Art Center. Awards will be handed out at the reception at 6:15 p.m., including a $500 prize for "Best in Show."
The works will then be displayed at the McGuffey Art Center until the end of March.
