Jamestown High School senior Lauren Garvey’s artwork was selected for the Albright-Knox Future Curator Exhibition. Her work will be exhibited from Friday, April 13th to Sunday, May 13th at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY. The opening will be held Thursday, April 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. Lauren’s work was selected out of 600 submitted works throughout Western New York and Canada, in which only approximately 60 were chosen to be in the exhibition.
Lauren created her work in her JHS Drawing class, a JCC College Connection course, which also earns her college credit. This is the fourth year JHS has submitted work to the Albright-Knox’s exhibit, and the fourth year the school has had student artwork accepted.
“It is a great honor that Lauren had work selected into the Albright-Knox Art Show,” said JHS art teacher Brandy Fuller. “It’s an amazing opportunity for students to gain recognition for their talent and have their work exhibited inside a world-renown art gallery. It’s an amazing opportunity and I’m glad that we are able to have one of our students take part in it. It’s truly a reflection of not only the wonderful talent that we have within our school district, but evidence of how having a strong art department, kindergarten through 12th grades, can feed that talent and help it to flourish.”
