Ten pieces of art created by seven different students from Broadalbin-Perth Senior High School have been chosen for an annual art exhibit that has gone virtual this year.
Saratoga Arts’ annual High School All Stars exhibit showcases artwork by students in Saratoga, Fulton and Montgomery counties. Traditionally, student artwork is on display at Saratoga Arts’ gallery, located at 320 Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs, but this year, the pandemic forced organizers to shift the event to an online platform. The High School All Stars exhibit is available on the Saratoga Arts website now through Feb. 28: https://www.saratoga-arts.org/High-School-All-Stars
The B-P students participating in the exhibit include: Cynthia McDougall (10th grade), Izzy Donahue (12th grade), Julianna Huckans (9th grade), Marion Marotta (10th grade), Noel Healy (10th grade), Nathan Sartin (10th grade), and Gabriella Lanzi (10th grade). The artwork was created from class projects assigned by B-P art teachers Wendy Carroll and John Dievendorf.
“Despite the pandemic and some students learning 100% remotely, art education continues at B-P,” Carroll said. “The teaching, learning and creating might look a little different, but art is still being created by our students.”
“I’m very proud of the hard work that our students are putting in this year and I’m grateful that we’ve found a way to recognize their talents and showcase their finished products,” Dievendorf said.
