Albany High artist's work gets congressional honorable mention

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 16, 2012) -- A self-portrait by an Albany High School senior earned an honorable mention on Monday in the 2012 Congressional Art Competition for the 21st Congressional District.

 

Leeanne Tobler's work, "Self-Portrait in Charcoal," was chosen from the best of the best of 13 local districts that submitted pieces to the contest, which was sponsored by Congressman Paul Tonko.

 

Tonko named Tobler and other winning artists at a reception on May 14.

 

The artwork was judged by a panel of local arts professionals. Also submitting artwork to the competition were junior Alexa Petit and senior Abby Salinero. All the entries were on display from May 7-14 at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy.

 

The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognized and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. An initiative of the U.S. House of Representatives, more than 650,000 students have participated in it since it began in 1982.
