Averill Park High School had four entries selected by three students to be shown at the annual High School Regional Exhibition, which is currently on display at the Albany Center Galleries. Congratulations to senior Emma Hanlon, Junior Marlee Cooke, and Sophomore Lilly Jacobson (two works selected).

On Friday March 24, Cooke was presented with a Sage College Scholarship Award for her painting titled The Other Side. Jacobson was awarded an Honorable Mention for her india ink drawing titled My DAD.

There were more than 573 submissions by 28 area schools and only 107 works were selected by local artists and gallery directors to be in the exhibition. It is an accomplishment to have work selected by art teachers to have work submitted to be juried, and an even greater honor to subsequently be selected for the show.

The Albany Center Gallery is located at 488 Broadway, Suite 107, Albany. The exhibit will open on March 24, 2023 with and opening reception and will close on April 22, 2023. To view the show, the gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
