The Seven-Up Art Show is set to open later this month. Featuring art work by high school students in Charles County Public Schools, the show is celebrating its 20th year at the Mattawoman Creek Art Center in Smallwood State Park.

Art teachers select pieces their students have created including paintings, drawings, photographs and sculpture. Prizes are given in each category to those in first-, second- and third-place, as well as honorable mention. The show offers young artists a chance to showcase their work in a professional gallery setting.

The show will run from Jan. 26 to Feb. 11 at the art center which is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday. An opening reception will be 1 to 4 p.m. Jan. 28 at the center. For more information, go to
