MINISINK SENIOR RECOGNIZED WITH PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD AT ANNUAL ART EXHIBIT


CONGRATULATIONS to Rachel Vance, winner of the People’s Choice Award at “The Arts Build Confidence Showcase," sponsored by the Orange County Council for the Arts.  

Rachel was one among hundreds of students from across Orange County to exhibit her artwork at the Galleria at Crystal Run, on February 25.


“I was pretty shocked,” Rachel said. “I didn't think I was going to win, to be honest. It was a big surprise.” Rachel's art teacher, Mrs. Hoban-Rich, was less surprised, but very proud of her student’s achievement.

Rachel’s entry in the exhibit was inspired by the work of Australian artist Loui Jover. “He does a lot of ink-wash and watercolor paintings on old book pages. I felt that this media could help me express a feeling,” she said.

Rachel has her eyes on the University at Albany, but she is still pondering her major.
