FESTIVAL OF YOUNG ARTISTS

Celebrating the performances, artwork, and writings of student artists from the Adirondack, Saratoga, and Capital Regions of New York State​

ABOUT THE CURRENT EXHIBIT​

SUMMER 2020​

“SELF-PORTRAIT”​

As artists, the ways in which we choose to express ourselves are often influenced by our own identities and the many diverse attributes that make us unique.  Included in our own list of personal identifiers might be our culture, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, religion, politics, and so on. ​

How does “who you are” guide how you choose to express yourself artistically?

2020 FOYA ARTWORK WINNER

This artwork was an attempt to express my journey learning how to embrace my Indian heritage and the American culture I've grown up with. I chose to do a collage because although the process can be tedious, I love how all the individual parts coalesce to form the piece.”

"THE STARS AND THEIR SHADOWS"

The vibrant billboards, brilliant sarees, 

and intricately painted buses 

are a dazzling kaleidoscope of color 

juxtaposed against 

the stormy grey monsoon sky 

oblivious to it all. 

” 

For the breeze of fear whispers into my ear

That perhaps I could blow away

Forever lost in the space between stars

Not yet , I say to the wind. Not yet.

”
