Clifton-Fine student wins Congressional Art Competition
SCHUYLERVILLE — North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has announced that Brianna Hanley, a ninth-grader from Clifton-Fine Central School in Star Lake, is the winner of this year’s NY-21 Congressional Art Competition.
Hanley’s winning work, titled “Hope,” is a two-panel piece depicting a cherry tree with mixed tempura and acrylic paint with India ink.
“Our district is home to many talented young artists, and I was honored to choose Brianna’s piece,” Stefanik said in a press release. “I especially appreciate her title choice, as hope is something we all rely on during these challenging times. This morning, I had the opportunity to congratulate Brianna over the phone and invite her to visit Washington when the Congressional Art Competition Reception is rescheduled for the fall.”
