Columbia High School students Elaina Goodman-Briggs ’19 and Alaaya Patterson ’19 had artwork selected for the 9th annual Juried Art in Three Dimensions show at the Mohonasen High School Art Gallery.

Of the 242 works submitted from 18 high schools, just 76 pieces were chosen for the show by the jurors.

Ms. Goodman-Briggs created a mixed media and plaster of paris figurative self-portrait. Ms. Patterson created a set of three pinch pots with sculpted details and mixed media elements added in. Both students took Semester 1 Ceramics/Sculpture with Columbia Art Teacher Valerie Gordon.

“I’ve had the pleasure of teaching Alaaya and Elaina in a few of my classes. These two ladies know how to rise to any challenge I present them with,” Mrs. Gordon said. “They produced amazing artwork. Congratulations to them!”
