Columbia High School students Emma Gentile ‘24, Isabelle Crossman ’23 and Emily Seely ’22 had artwork on display recently at the 2022 Congressional Art Competition. The exhibition took place at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy.
Ms. Seely and Ms. Crossman submitted their digital photographs titled “Curiosity” and “Pas De Deux” from Ms. Andrea Neiman’s Photography class. Ms. Gentile submitted a landscape painting of a sunset from Ms. Gordon’s Painting class.
Congressman Paul Tonko attended the event and spoke of the importance of art in society. He was complimentary of the artwork on display and took the time to congratulate each student and ask them about their inspiration and process.
The Congressional Art Competition is an annual, nationwide art competition that accepts entries from high school students across the United States, providing them with a unique venue to showcase their artistic abilities.
