24th Annual High School Regional Juried Exhibition

Tags: Gallery News

From March 21 to April 22 2023, Albany Center Gallery (ACG) presents the 24th Annual High School Regional Juried Exhibition, featuring the work of regional high school students.

Check out photos of the exhibit and receptions here!

An artists’ reception for students, teachers, families, and guardians (not open to the public) was held on March 24 from 5 - 8 p.m., with the awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m.

The public reception was held on Saturday, March 25 from noon - 5 p.m. The exhibition features over 100 works of art made by students from over 25 high schools around the Capital Region, selected by jurors out of over 550 submissions. The exhibit showcases a variety of student work including painting, drawing, photography, film, digital media, and sculpture.

The High School Regional highlights the importance of having arts programming within schools, cultivating imagination, and sharing the arts with youth; even at a young age. In years past, teachers from all over the Capital Region have sent in hundreds of diverse student works that demonstrate the varying skills and ideas of a large group of young, burgeoning creatives. The wide-ranging selection of works reflect the unique perspectives of our next generation through the powerful outlet of art. The High School Regional was put together in collaboration with the New York State Art Teacher’s Association, Region 6, and the Capital Area Art Supervisors.

Art inspires youth to be engaged with their community and themselves. The youth are the future; let’s continue to support them and their creative voices.

Exhibit dates: March 21 - April 22, 2023

Student, teacher, family, and guardians' reception: Friday, March 24, 5 to 8 p.m. (Awards at 6:30 p.m.)
