BOLTON LANDING - Several students from Bolton Central School received recognition recently for having their artwork chosen to be included in a regional juried art show.
Three Bolton High school students had their works chosen out of more than 1,200 entries in the Hyde Collection's recent 18th annual Regional Juried High School Art Exhibition.
The exhibition is a yearly showcase of high school art students' talent and creativity, allowing them to experience the preparation, submission, and jurying process, museum officials said.
The students submitting artwork for the 2009 competition hailed from 40 area schools spanning five counties.
The Bolton High School students whose artworks were chosen, are Sophomore Emma Cady, Junior Taylor Barrack, and Meredith Chamberlain.
Bolton Central Superintendent of Schools Raymond Ciccarelli said the school community was proud that these students were representing Bolton in the Hyde competition.
Their teacher is Amie O'Rourke.
The Hyde Collection's Executive Director David F. Setford noted, "Year after year, area students impress us with the caliber of their work."
