— Art from students across Saratoga County went on display Saturday at the Saratoga Arts building.

The collection, which includes works from a variety of art forms, is part of the two-week showcase of high school students whose work was selected by their art teachers.

A two-hour reception was held on Saturday to unveil the project.

Everything from sculptures to drawing was highlighted in the collection, which displays local talent and potentially encourages these young artists. This is all part of the mission of Saratoga Arts, which tries to cultivate, nourish and sustain art.

Emma Hunenck, a student at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, where she is working on a fine arts major, was the co-curator of this exhibit. She is originally from Clifton Park and is currently working at the State Museum in Albany.

Last year she was an intern at Saratoga Arts as part of the exhibitions program.

Students from Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Corinth, Saratoga Springs, Shenendehowa, South Glens Falls, Stillwater and The Waldorf School were involved in the project.

The gallery is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
