Drawings, paintings, and multi-media works created by Harford County Public School students will fill the Liriodendron Gallery in the upcoming Young Artists’ Showcase, a community art show that provides students with a venue to display their work outside of classrooms and private art classes. The free-to-the-public event is a collaborative project among Exploration Art School, Liriodendron Gallery, and several art teachers from Bel Air-based Harford County Public Schools. This exhibit will be open every Sunday from 1:00-4:00 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 1:00-7:00 p.m.
The Young Artists’ Showcase will energetically ‘kick off’ the 2017 gallery season for a second annual show at Liriodendron on Sunday, March 12, 2017. Colorful festivities include a free public reception with delightful refreshments, beautiful music provided by students from a variety of Harford County Public Schools, and, of course, unique student art displays throughout the mansion’s second floor gallery.
Built in 1898 as a summer home for Dr. Howard Kelly (one of the four founding physicians of Johns Hopkins Hospital), his wife and nine children, the Liriodendron mansion provides a natural setting for children to display their art and also play on the beautiful grounds as the Kelly children once did.
