January 28 through February 26, the work of more than 1,000 young artists from Eastern Long Island schools will on view at the Parrish Art Museum’s annual Student Exhibition. A more than 60-year tradition that celebrates youthful imagination and boundless creativity, this important aspect of the Museum’s programs is enhanced this year by five Artist-in-Residencies with Suzanne Anker, Anne Bae, Monica Banks, Ben Butler, and Saskia Friedrich, whose work was included in the critically acclaimed exhibition Artists Choose ArtistsThe Student Exhibition kicks off Family Month at the Museum, featuring films, unique art workshops, and programs on Fridays in February.

n addition to the nearly 300 works by students under the direction of their art teachers in 38 public, private, and home schools, the exhibition features group and individual works by 350 students who participated in hands-on workshops to create original art work based on the five artists’ unique approaches to art making. In their creative practice, each of these artists explores intersections between the visual arts and nature in ways that deepened students’ understanding of the world around them. Several of the artists investigate non-art disciplines including biology, geology, and mathematics.

Participants in the Student Exhibition explore many traditional and non-traditional approaches to art-making. Working with their art teachers and through art clubs in schools from Bellport to East Hampton and the North Fork, the students demonstrate imagination, enthusiasm, and technical skill in diverse media such as painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and costume design. Taken together, the exhibition gives an overview of the high level of creativity and accomplishment achieved in the schools.

The participating junior and senior high schools are: Bellport, Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology, Eastport South Manor, Greenport, Hampton Bays, Mattituck, Miller Place, Pierson, Riverhead, Ross Upper, Southampton, Westhampton Beach, and William Floyd.

Students from Southampton and Hampton Bays Life Skills, as well as from Bridgehampton, Southampton, and Tuckahoe public schools participated in the Artist-in-Residency workshops.
