Exhibit at Gallery 66 NY features 20 regional students
“Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you’ve got to start young.” – Theodore Roosevelt.
Gallery 66 NY is ushering in the New Year with a most unusual and exciting program to help students begin to establish foundations for success. The gallery recently sent out an open call to all high-school-age artists in Cold Spring, Newburgh, Beacon, Peekskill, and Wappingers Falls, soliciting their work for a juried art exhibition with the theme Roots and Pathways.
The 20 talented artists chosen for the showing — who currently attend Haldane, Newburgh, Peekskill, Roy Ketcham, and John Jay High Schools — were asked to relate the theme to their personal lives, histories, and visions for the future. The result is a multi-media trove of rich and diverse pieces, provocative and thoughtful.
The gallery will host a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 3, with the artists present to discuss their art. This is an opportunity to visit with young creators at the beginning of their careers.
Roots and Pathways runs from Jan. 3 through Feb. 2, at Gallery 66 NY, 66 Main St., Cold Spring. For more information call 845-809-5838, or visit gallery66ny.com.
