ABOUT THE ARTISTS

“This year’s exhibition is extra special,” notes Sheila Elario, a retired K-12 instructional administrator for Art and Design at Guilderland Central School District and member of the Capital Area Art Supervisors, who organized the exhibition. “Students had a chance to reexamine past works and were given a voice in how they view their world around them. In looking at the body of work, we can see that each students’ values and interpretation of the Four Freedoms has changed significantly, and yet there are ideas that have changed little over the past 75 years.”
