Regional High School Student Art Show underway at NCCC-Malone; Reception set for March 15

Malone – Amazing and inspiring works of art from high school students across the region will be on display at North Country Community College’s Malone campus through March 26.

The third-annual Regional High School Student Art Show began last week. It features work from high school students in Clinton, Essex, Franklin and St. Lawrence counties.

Each high school in the region was invited to submit up to eight works of art for the show, according to Tina LaMour, associate professor for art and chair of NCCC’s Fine Art and Graphics program.

“We’re excited to once again showcase the art work of so many talented high school students in the North Country,” LaMour said. “There’s a great range of submissions this year including paintings, photography and sculpture. There is some high-caliber work coming out of the high schools.”

The show features the work of 74 students representing the following high schools: Parishville-Hopkinton, Plattsburgh, Moriah Central, Salmon River, Ticonderoga, Elizabethtown Lewis, Madrid-Waddington, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Norwood-Norfolk and Franklin Academy.

These works of art will be on display to the public through March 26 in the NCCC Malone campus’ Mezzanine Gallery, 74 William St., during the college’s normal hours of operation.

In addition, an open-to-the-public reception will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 15 in the Mezzanine Gallery. Best in Show and other awards will be presented to participating high school students during the reception.

The Regional High School Student Art Show is sponsored by the NCCC Malone Art Club and local arts organizations, Downtown Artists Cellar and Pouring Light Studios.
