How would you create imagery or writing that expresses your interpretation of the word “dream?”
That is the theme of the 38th annual Talent Unlimited Literary Arts Journal. Students in grades 7 – 12 were inspired by this theme to create thoughtful and imaginative paintings, drawings, photographs, mixed media, and graphic design pieces and to write compelling essays, poems and stories. They bravely submitted their best work to be considered for publication. The art and writing, 50 pieces in each category, were chosen by juries of professional artists and writers.
The Talent Unlimited Literary Arts Journal is published by the Enrichment Resource Center at the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex BOCES. It provides young artists and writers with the opportunity to have their art seen and their writing read while participating in a selection process that mirrors the professional worlds of art and publishing.
The Talent Unlimited 2023 exhibition in the Courthouse Gallery features over 40 pieces of the published students’ original artwork.
Reception: Saturday, June 10, 4:00 – 6:00 PM
Sunday Arts: Sunday, June 11, 1:00 – 2:30 PM Sunday gallery time with tour of the exhibition and art making opportunities for all ages.
