Donahue and Healy selected for 2021 Festival of Young Artists Showcase

Two Broadalbin-Perth high school students have been selected to have their artwork featured in the Visual Art category of the 2021 Adirondack Trust Company Festival of Young Artists showcase. Senior Izzy Donahue and sophomore Noel Healy each submitted projects completed in their art classes at B-P. Both of their pieces of art were selected for the showcase, which will be virtual this year with the possibility of a live showcase at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) later this spring. 

Starting March 31, the 2021 Festival of Young Artists showcase will be featured online at

Each year, the festival seeks entries from high school students and youth ensembles in one of several upstate New York counties: Albany, Essex, Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Rensselaer, Warren and Washington.

New this year, Saratoga Performing Arts Center is recognizing one student in each of three separate categories — Visual Art, Literary Art, and the Performing Arts — with the distinction of “FOYA 2021 Outstanding Artist.” Each of the three artists selected will receive $500 to support the further development of their craft.
