SARATOGA SPRINGS — Every year, Saratoga Arts solicits high school art teachers representing schools from Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery counties, to submit artwork from their top three students.
The work is installed in the Main Gallery space at 320 Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs for the public to see the amazing talent of local high school all-stars.
This year, Saratoga Arts encouraged submissions of both visual artwork and written artwork, with the theme Ekphrasis in mind. Looking to the quote, “Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks,” said by Simonides of Ceoa, as a definition, we hope that all viewers of the exhibit will walk away questioning how visual artwork can inspire the written word, and the written word can inspire the visual.
Opening Night was Friday, Jan. 13 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The exhibition will run from Jan. 14 to Feb. 4.
Saratoga Arts is a 501c3 organization founded in 1986 by and for artists across all genres.
