GCPS Tapestry Display exhibits Gwinnett’s best in visual arts

     Gwinnett’s best young artists will be spotlighted during Gwinnett County Public Schools’ (GCPS) four-week Tapestry event. The showcase runs February 19 – March 29 at the J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center (ISC), located at 437 Old Peachtree Rd. NW in Suwanee.

     Due to safety procedures implemented because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the show has expanded to encompass additional weeks to reduce the number of schools and panels on display on any given week at the ISC. In addition, there will not be formal opening nights or ceremonies related to the exhibit this year. Each cluster of schools will have a designated evening in which their artists and families are invited to come view their artwork and the works of other students. All guests to the ISC must wear masks and maintain safe distance from other guests.

    All of the selected student artwork for the Tapestry exhibit will be available for in-person viewing at the ISC as is traditional. In addition, new this year, there is an online digital option for the artists and guests to view the works online. The online link for the show is located here and will go active on February 19, the first day of the show. Please see the next page for the designated days and times for in-person viewing at the ISC and the schedule for each cluster.

 

The building hours for the Instructional Support Center during the Tapestry event are:  Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 6 p.m. Masks are required at all GCPS facilities.
