Area student artwork showcased today

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The opening reception of All Stars: An Exhibition of High School Artists will be held on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Arts Center Gallery at Saratoga Arts, according to a news release.

Art teachers throughout Saratoga, Fulton and Montgomery counties, representing Ballston Spa, Broadalbin-Perth, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Corinth, Galway, Gloversville, Mayfield, Saratoga Springs, Shenendehowa, Stillwater, and South Glens Falls school districts, selected work in all media from their students to exhibit in gallery.

This exhibition provides an opportunity for art students to exhibit in a professional gallery setting and gain recognition for their artistic and creative accomplishments. The opportunity helps prepare and motivate young artists to pursue the arts throughout their lives and find value in creative communities.

With the guidance and artistic foundation provided by their teachers, students are able to develop their own voices and make connections across disciplines, while sharing their inspiration with their peers and the public.

By encouraging younger generations of artists to excel in their creative work, Saratoga Arts fulfills its mission of cultivating, nourishing and sustaining the arts in all forms.
