“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks”
Every year, Saratoga Arts solicits high school art teachers representing schools from Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery counties, to submit artwork from their top three students. The work is installed in our Main Gallery space at 320 Broadway, in downtown Saratoga Springs, for the public to see the amazing talent of our local high school all stars.
This year, Saratoga Arts encouraged submissions of both visual artwork and written artwork, with the theme Ekphrasis in mind. Looking to the above quote as a definition, we hope that all viewers of the exhibit will walk away questioning how visual artwork can inspire the written word, and the written word can inspire the visual.
