Holy Names Traveling Art Show Makes Local Rounds

ALBANY – In September, Academy of The Holy Names announced the launch of its annual Traveling Art Show. Under the direction of Art Teacher, Dana Sela, and Director of Enrollment Management, Wendy Diefendorf, the show includes exhibits of student art and showings at a variety of local organizations and businesses.

“African Americans We Admire” on display at the Bach Branch of the Albany Public Library

Three traveling collections have already been exhibited at various venues. No Mud, No Lotus featuring botanical prints was displayed at Danker Florist in Albany. African Americans We Admire was displayed at the Bach Branch Library in Albany to celebrate Women’s History Month. No Plan B, featuring “save the planet” paintings, was displayed at Honest Weight Food CO-OP, also in Albany.

The Birds of a Feather collection, featuring handcrafted birds, is currently on display at the Bethlehem Public Library and will remain so until Nov. 30.

“This has been a wonderful opportunity for our students to present their work to a larger audience and give our neighbors a better sense of the skill and talent being fostered here at Holy Names. We are thrilled for them and for our neighbors who get to appreciate our students’ artistry.”
