Broadalbin-Perth student work at FMCC art show
At the annual Fulton-Montgomery Community College (FMCC) Regional Juried High School Art Show, 11 works by Broadalbin-Perth High School art students will be on display.
The FMCC show, which opens April 7 and runs through April 16 at the Perrella Gallery, is open to students within a 50-mile radius of the college. More than 130 works were submitted, including 30 by B-P.
One of B-P’s submitted works, a 3D pen-and-ink drawing by senior Taz Taylor, earned a juror’s award. According to BPHS art teacher Wendy Carroll, juror’s awards are presented by the show’s judge to works of art that he or she “has taken a particular liking to.”
“It may or may not be the best piece in the show, but it reveals something that has touched the juror as an artist or reveals something about the creator of the piece,” Carroll said. “It’s somewhat like a people’s choice award, but with a judge.”
The 11 B-P High School students whose works were selected for the show are:
-- Taz Taylor, grade 12 – Juror’s Award
-- Carissa Hudman, grade 10 – Honorable Mention
-- Chace Bouch, grade 12
-- Zach Finch, grade 12
-- Mike Visco, grade 12
-- Morgan Fisher, grade 11
-- Liz Bowen, grade 10
-- Nate Frascatore, grade 10
-- Maria Provensano, grade 10
-- Connor Wilson, grade 10
-- Jake Cope, grade 9
A reception and awards ceremony is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 16, at the Perrella Gallery; the event is open to the public. The Perrella Gallery is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays, with hours extended to 9 p.m. on Thursdays.
