Art show spotlights student talent

Middle school art teacher Emily Juda said she chose sixth-grader Troy Gapczynski's scratchboard design and a colored pencil illustration by seventh-grader Sarah Ryle to represent the middle school, along with work from two eighth-grade students, Abigail Pietrow and Alexis Webb.

Co-chair of the show Joan Davidson of NYSATA said the organization encourages area art teachers to take part in the show because it is an opportunity for teachers to be advocates for art in public schools.

"We need to ensure that the arts programs are kept alive and well-funded in our schools, and at all grade levels," said Davidson.

The artwork will be on display Jan. 16 to 23 in the Legislative Office Building in Albany. ""
