The arts are thriving in Gwinnett County Public Schools! You’re invited to experience the largest student art exhibit in the state… Tapestry 2019. The annual event occurs over three weeks in February and March, kicking off our celebration of Youth Art Month in March.
The rotating exhibit—set for Feb. 19 to March 15— will be on display at the J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center (ISC), located at 437 Old Peachtree Rd. NW in Suwanee. Tapestry visitors will have the opportunity to see colorful and creative work that demonstrates students’ mastery of the AKS curriculum in the Fine Arts. During the event, the ISC’s lobby area is transformed into an art gallery filled with paintings, drawings, three-dimensional art, mixed media, pottery, and jewelry— all created by Gwinnett students.
Below, see the dates, times, and exhibiting schools and clusters for the three exhibit rotations. Tapestry is open to the public during business hours on exhibit days and designated weekend hours (7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, and 1 to 6 p.m. on Sundays).
