Annual exhibit opens with Jan. 8 reception
Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring will host an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 8, for its annual exhibit of works by high school artists from five area high schools, including Haldane.
The gallery posted an open call to high school artists in four surrounding counties for the juried exhibition of work about their personal lives, remembrances or special moments. The works of 20 students from five high schools — Haldane, Newburgh, Millbrook, Spring Valley and John Jay — were selected. “The result is a trove of rich and diverse pieces,” said Gallery 66 NY owner Barbara Galazzo, who this year for the third time has offered students a chance to exhibit their work in a professional gallery.
The artists participating from Haldane High School are Ethan Gunther and Wylie Thornquist. The others are Alex Letteri, Amanda Ortega, Ann Marie Hummel, Anna Di Fede, Claire Wu, Connor Pond, Crystal Okonkwo, Crystal Wu, Eleni Neckles, Fransisco Colon, Hannah Whitehead, Jessica d’Alo, Kaitlin Haessler, Lamar Burch, Matt Reinhold, Mikhal Gallien, Olivia Delgado, Sarah Colotti and Tony Galarza.
Following the opening, the exhibit will be on view from noon to 5 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Saturday, Jan. 2 through Sunday, Jan. 31. Gallery 66 NY is at 66 Main St. in Cold Spring. For more information, visit gallery66ny.com or call 845-809-5838.
