The “Celebrating Rowan County’s Young Artists” exhibition continues for the next few weeks at Waterworks Visual Arts Center, 123 E. Liberty St. in Salisbury.

Now in its 30th year, this rotating display of artwork features the works of nearly 800 students representing Salisbury-Rowan County’s public, independent, and home-schooled students. These exhibitions celebrate both the efforts of the art specialists who teach the creative process and the talents of the county’s youth. The Young People’s Gallery is free and open to the public.


A reception to honor the students and their families, the art specialists, and school administrators is held during each exhibition rotation.

Independent and home schools were featured Feb. 16 through March 6, and art from Rowan-Salisbury elementary school students was displayed March 11 through March 27.

Currently on display, from March 30 through April 17, is art from Rowan-Salisbury middle schools. A reception will be held on April 11, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Rowan-Salisbury high schools will be featured from April 20 through May 11, with a reception on May 2 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free; donations are appreciated. For more information, visit www.waterworks.org.
