The artwork was reviewed by a panel of artists consisting of Joel Chapin, Professor of Fine Art and Director of the Perrella Gallery at Fulton Montgomery Community College, and his staff.

The annual show provides an opportunity for schools in the Capital Region to highlight three-dimensional art programs and to showcase student artwork. The exhibit includes art made from clay, wire, jewelry, plaster, papier-mache, wood and found materials.

The Art in Three Dimensions Exhibit is on display through Feb. 25 at the Mohonasen Art Gallery at Mohonasen High School, 2072 Curry Road. An artist reception is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., with certificates being presented around 7 p.m.
