The works of four Bethlehem Central High School student artists will be featured at an Albany exhibit showcasing the artwork of some of the area’s most talented high school artists. The 22nd Annual High School Regional, a juried exhibition, will be on display from March 25 through April 18 at the Albany Center Gallery in downtown Albany. The exhibit will feature a variety of student work in all mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, film, digital media, and sculpture.

The students whose work will be featured are:

  • Maggie Bailey

The 22nd High School Regional is juried by Jennie Tang, Jade Warrick and Matthew Weinheimer. Tang is a BC graduate and curatorial assistant at the Albany Center Gallery who is pursuing a master’s degree in Art History from Hunter College in Manhattan.

As part of National Youth Art Month, the High School Regional highlights the importance of having arts programs in schools and promoting the cultivation of imagination and exposure to the arts for youths even at a young age. The wide-ranging selection of works reflects the unique perspectives of our next generation through the powerful outlet of art.
