Many of the artists will be present for an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Nov. 7 that is free to the public. The Teaching Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Administration Building on the Troy campus.

All artist/teachers in NYSATA’s 11‐county Region 6 were invited to submit their work for inclusion in “Studio Time,” resulting in an especially diverse exhibit that includes drawings, paintings, photographs, video, sculpture and mixed‐media works. The artists represent K‐12 art classrooms in the following school districts: Bethlehem, East Greenbush, Gilboa‐Conesville, Guilderland, Ichabod Crane, Mechanicville, Menands, Mohonasen, Niskayuna, North Colonie, Schalmont, Scotia‐Glenville, Shenendehowa and Troy.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with Capital Area Art Supervisors, whose mission is to ensure all K‐12 visual arts education “fosters personal growth, community involvement, and social and career development.”

Teaching Gallery exhibits are installed and assisted by students in Gallery Management courses with support from the Department of Fine Arts, Theatre Arts and Digital Media, the Cultural Affairs Program and the Hudson Valley Community College Foundation. Associate Professor Tara Fracalossi is gallery director.
