Artist Erin Mettille opened her one-woman exhibit and hosted an opening reception at the Washington County Arts Council May 30.

 Mettille’s art was chosen from multiple submissions to be the “look” of the 18th annual Western Maryland Blues Fest.

The Barbara Ingram School for the Arts graduating senior is on her way to Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga., in the fall and plans to major in illustration.

  Mettille participated in the Maryland Symphony Orchestra Collaboration in 2012 and the painting of the Greater Hagerstown Bicycle Mural Project in 2011-12.

Erin has won local artistic awards, including first place in the Martin Luther King Jr. Poster Contest in 2013 and second place in "Love Your Tree" statewide poster contest in 2011.

She was a People to People Student Ambassador to Australia in 2010, and for the last two years she has been a member of the National Honor Society and the Yearbook Club.
