NORWICH – The Chenango Arts Council is setting the stage for one of the largest youth-oriented art shows of the year.
The annual “Artistic Discovery” series features the work of local high school artists who are vying for a place in the national spotlight. Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors the nationwide competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent among high school students.
An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday, at the Mariea Brown and Raymond Loft Galleries of the Chenango Arts Council, 27 W. Main St. in Norwich. Students' art work will remain on display through April 18. As with every gallery opening, the event is free and open to the public. Students' work will remain on display through April 18. This year's local Artistic Discovery is made possible through sponsorship from Congressman Richard Hanna (NY-22nd district) and additional support from the George and Eisabeth Mead Foundation.
