KATONAH, N.Y.— For the 34th year in a row, the Katonah Museum of Art is holding its Young Artists exhibition showcasing the talents of dozens of young artists from across Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Dutchess and Fairfield counties.

Advanced placement art students from North Salem have been invited to participate including Henry Balch, Julia Colletes, Tori Dearborn, Chloe DeLeo, Shauna Hendrie, Dana Kopser and Sarah MacLeod.

More than 400 artworks by high school students from throughout the region are spotlighted in this exhibit. Museum officials say the program gives teens “the opportunity to work behind-the-scenes to produce a museum exhibition.” Over a period of several months, the young artists take on the roles of curator, exhibition designer, graphic designer, art installer and artist as they collaborate with professionals to produce the exhibition. The Young Artists Exhibition runs through March 5.

The museum is located at 134 Jay Street-Route 22 in Katonah. For more information visit http://www.katonahmuseum.org.

At every turn there is a reservoir, farm, trail or the stunning vista of the Hudson Highlands. Less development and fewer traffic lights showcase nature’s bounty uniquely during each season and I never tire of taking it all in. I often stop and take pictures on my ...
