GLENS FALLS, NY. One hundred works of art created by some of Northern New York’s most talented high school art students will on display at The Hyde Collection beginning Saturday, April 25, 2015.
The works were chosen from a field of 1,000 entries submitted by students in grades nine through twelve from more than 20 school districts in Warren, Washington, Saratoga, Hamilton and Essex Counties.
The Hyde’s 24th Annual Regional Juried High School Art Exhibition will be open through Sunday, May 31, 2015 in the Charles R. Wood Gallery. The annual showcase is designed to give participating students an opportunity to experience the preparation, submission and jurying process crucial to artistic development.
Entries for the competition were reviewed by a jury of professional artists: Photographer David Aimone of Saratoga Springs; Jenny Hutchinson, Gallery and Marketing Coordinator at the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council in Glens Falls; and Rebecca Pelcher, Assistant Professor of Art History and Director of the Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury.
“Our responsibility at The Hyde is not only to preserve and exhibit masterworks of European and American art but to help cultivate and support the next generation of great American artists,” said Charles Guerin, the Hyde’s executive director. “We regard it as a distinct privilege to showcase the extraordinary talents of local students each year.
The exhibit will culminate in an open house and awards reception for the students and their families from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 17, 2015, in the Charles R. Wood Gallery.
