In celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Nisk-Art Gallery, the Art Department is sponsoring a juried exhibition from art alumni from the graduating classes of 1990 through 2014, who are either currently working in the art field as a professional artist or enrolled in a college-level art degree program.
The exhibition is ongoing through Friday, May 8, 2015. A reception will be held the evening of May 8, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The Nisk-Art Gallery is located at the high school.
The Nisk-Art Gallery is an Arts in Education facility that is enjoyed by the whole community. It was established in 1989 during the tenure of Art Director, Mr. Frank Vurraro. The Gallery then continued to operate under the direction of Art Director, Mr. Scott Walroth until 2014. The Gallery is currently under the direction of Art Director, Ms. Kelly Jones.
The Gallery Club, under the advisement of Mr. Stephen Honicki and Director of Art, Ms. Kelly Jones serves as an "arts network" for the selection of artists while fostering authentic art gallery experiences for students. Exhibits feature award winning work by Niskayuna students as well as local, regional, and national artists.
