Morgan DePasse stands with her artworkCongratulations to HHS junior Morgan DePasse on being selected to show her artwork at the 24th annual Juried Art Show at Columbia-Greene Community College! Her selected work, titled “Pride,” is currently on display in the Foundation Gallery at C-GCC until February 21st.

“I am extremely honored to have been selected for this art show and to represent Hudson’s Art Department,” said DePasse. She is one of several students from 15 local school districts who were selected to participate.

DePasse created “Pride” for a project in her Drawing class. The topic was the seven deadly sins.

“I chose pride because it can be controversial. Many find having pride in one’s self as a good thing yet pride is also considered a deadly sin,” said DePasse.

Two of DePasse’s favorite materials, colored pencils and markers, were used to create “Pride.” She also used recycled materials.

“Mixed media is my favorite way to create artwork,” shared DePasse. “You can use as many different mediums as you like to bring something unique to life.”

HHS Art teacher Liz Albino said that “Morgan is an outstanding student who shows great talent and potential when creating artwork.”
