Three Broadalbin-Perth High School students have had their sculptures entered into the Saratoga Arts High School All Stars art show. Art teacher Wendy Carroll selected work created by sophomores Lily Bown and Julianna Carey and junior Lauren Walters to be exhibited at the show. 

The show is hosted annually by Saratoga Arts at the Arts Center Gallery, 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs. This year’s exhibit will start with an opening reception on Jan. 19, and will run through Feb. 9. 

Saratoga Arts has dedicated its first exhibition of the year to the annual show for the past decade. Teachers from school districts in Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery counties are asked to enter “the best of what their students have created.”

“The High School All Stars Exhibition provides a unique opportunity for high school art students to exhibit in a professional gallery setting and gain recognition for their artistic and creative accomplishments,” according to the Saratoga Arts website. “We hope this opportunity helps prepare and motivate young artists to enjoy and pursue the arts throughout their lives.”
