Glens Falls’ Art students maintain the tradition of excellence once again by being chosen as part of the top 100 works of art to be displayed at the Hyde Museum.

Three jurors assessed over 800 works of art submitted by 25 area school districts this year in various mediums, styles and subject matter. "Judges looked for work showing mastery of technique, skill and understanding of aesthetics, all while expressing individuality and creative thinking," says Glens Falls art teacher Karen Mars.

Glens Falls senior Amanda Lewis won one of five Juror's Choice awards for her inkjet print, Autumn Essence.

"The annual exhibition is a well-known and admired showcase of local high school art students’ talent and creativity," explains the Hyde's release on the show. "This unique format allows participating students to experience the preparation, submission, and jurying process, which is critical to their artistic development."

This prestigious selection goes to Jazmyn Blair, Patricia Blair, AJ Carl, Andy Culliton, Paige Guy, Alixandra Johnston, Cooper Knapp, Izabella Lashway, Amanda Lewis, Jacquelin Mignot, Angie Nardin, Lucy Reid (two pieces), Jacob Tenner, and Lucy Tougas. View a photo album of each work HERE.

A Jurors’ Award went to Amanda Lewis for her inkjet print entitled "Autumn Essence."

All now have their artwork displayed at The Hyde Museum through May 1, 2016. An awards reception was held for artists and their families on April 10th.

Last year’s top two awards went to Glens Falls students. Riley Brennan received the Director’s Choice Award and Patricia Blair received the Best in Show Award. Congratulations to all of these hard working Artists!
