Albright-Knox Honors NT Student

artwork The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has selected Eleanor Collins to show in the Future Curators 2021 Exhibition. Her painting “New Year” was selected from student work submitted from across Western New York to hang at the gallery’s alternate locations as well as virtually.

Eleanor is a sophomore at North Tonawanda High School, where she is a visual art student in the studio of Christina Davis. Mrs. Davis is extremely proud of her student.

“Eleanor is so advanced and driven,” said Mrs. Davis. “She pushes herself to learn and perfect the next skill. I am always adapting lessons to challenge her.”

District Director of Fine Arts Dean Vallas is also thrilled over the honor.

“It is an incredible piece and I am so proud of Eleanor and the Visual Art faculty who have helped her get to this level," Mr. Vallas said. "March is Arts in Our Schools Month and this is a special addition to the celebration.”

Eleanor is hoping to pursue a career in the arts and also enjoys writing.
