LEE — Juliette Gagnon, a local artist and senior at Lee High School, embraces her family’s indigenous roots through her artwork.

Tasked with picking a theme for her ongoing portfolio series, Gagnon didn’t need to look too far for inspiration.

As one of eight students in an advanced portfolio class at Lee High School, Gagnon is showcasing her work as part of November’s First Friday Artswalk in downtown Pittsfield, a rotating month-long gallery highlighting the work of local artists.

Students of Nicole Clark’s portfolio class hung their work on the interior and exterior walls of Steven Valenti’s Clothing Store, at 157 North St., where their artwork will be on display for the rest of November.
