Saranac Lake Central School District senior Brooke Tuttle received the Best in Show award in the Lake Placid Center for the Arts’ annual North Country Middle/High School Juried Art Exhibition.

Tuttle’s tiny acrylic paintings of endangered animals, “Endangered,” competed with 82 artworks from students in nine school districts across the region.

Each district was allowed to submit 15 student artworks for consideration by the juror for inclusion in the show. Awards were then selected from the included works.

Along with Tuttle, 12 other Saranac Lake students from the following art classes had work selected and on exhibition: digital painting, digital photography, drawing and painting, sculpture, studio art, drawing and design, and independent study.

In addition, six SLHS digital photography students were recognized by the Lake Placid Institute for their photographic submissions to “24 Hours: A Photographic Interpretation of the Adirondacks.”
