LongHouse Reserve Celebrates Student Artists

East Hampton’s LongHouse Reserve hosted its Student Annual VII on Tuesday, when Long Island students were awarded for outstanding artistic achievement.

The Student Annual celebrates the importance of art in the lives of children. Local arts educators, student peers, and LongHouse Reserve representatives honored achievements from more than 400 submissions. Students ranged in age from kindergarteners through 12th-graders and came from 15 participating school districts. Submissions included individual and collaborative works in media of students’ choosing, such as drawing, fashion design, performance art, watercolor, ceramics, and animation. Students also submitted a brief statement about how the LongHouse Reserve has inspired them and their work.

Juried by LongHouse Reserve curators and the LongHouse Reserve Education Committee, the 140 winners were selected from 22 categories. Winners were acknowledged with ribbons and inclusion on the LongHouse Reserve website, along with LongHouse Reserve’s summer newsletter in the form of a catalogue insert. Continuing the tradition from last year, Suffolk County National Bank will also showcase all winning entries in its branches across East Hampton throughout the summer. Among the celebrated students were Best in Show Evelyn Liang, First Place Art and Poetry winner Olivia Davis, First Place Photography winner Autumn Street, First Illustration winner Kiersten West, and First Place Fashion Illustration winner Erin Decker.
