Two Broadalbin-Perth High School art students have their artwork on display at the New York State Legislative Office Building in Albany as part of the New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA) 2019 Legislative Exhibit.

As a NYSATA member, high school art teacher Mrs. Wendy Carroll submitted the works of seniors Jacqueline Hilliard and Rhys Floyd to the annual exhibit, which provides an exciting opportunity for students and their families to connect with their Legislators. Legislators from across the state are invited to recognize the artistic accomplishments of their aspiring artist constituents.

“It is a great honor to have our students’ artwork at the State Capitol on display,” Carroll said. “Both Jacqueline and Rhys are excellent students and I am very proud of both of them!”

The art will be on display through March 7 in The Well of the Legislative Office Building at the Empire State Plaza.
