Columbia senior Amelie Hild and sophomore Anne Cass both had artwork selected for the 17th annual High School Regional Juried Art Exhibition at The Albany Center Gallery this spring. Their work was displayed in the exhibition from April 1-April 23 and they were invited to a reception on April 8.
Hild (pictured right) drew a self-portrait using pointillism to capture herself deep in thought. Her drawing (pictured above her) was submitted by Art Teacher Patti LeRoy.
“I was really honored,” Hild said. “I’ve never had something in a gallery.”
Cass’ entry was a black and white photograph of her older sister holding an umbrella in a crosswalk in Great Barrington, Mass. The photo was taken for a music video slideshow in her art class. She used lines and contrast and a shallow depth of field in the photograph.
This is the fourth consecutive year Columbia has had students accepted to this juried art show.
“Just having our students get into this show every year is exciting,” said Art Teacher Andrea Neiman.
