Columbia High School students had their artwork featured at three different art shows recently – the High School Regional Art Show, the Congressional Art Show and Horsing Around with the Arts. Congratulations to each of these students!

High School Regional Art Show

Columbia students Lindsey Conboy ’20 and Maegan Drzymala ’18 had artwork on display at the 19th Annual High School Regional at the Albany Center Gallery in May. The High School Regional is a juried show with more than 520 pieces of student artwork submitted by 24 area school districts. Only 100 works were accepted into the show and displayed at the exhibit on May 3.

Ms. Drzymala submitted her Untitled silver gelatin print from Ms. Andrea Neiman’s Photography class and Ms. Conboy submitted her ceramic tile piece titled “Up on Mt. Marcy” from Ms. Valerie Gordon’s Ceramics/Sculpture class.
