The Central High School District art department is proud to share that a number of students’ works will be displayed at a selective juried exhibition at The Art Guild at Elderfields Preserve in Port Washington.

Once a year, the Art Guild offers high school students from Nassau County a chance to have their art displayed at their gallery. Students are able to submit works of art under 30" x 30" in any medium they choose. This year, the district has 16 students who were selected for this incredible honor.

The following students are Kennedy High School’s Sylvia Bergman, Mikaela Cohen, Lillian Stone and Gianna Valente under the supervision of teachers Vanessa Albaneze and Carissa Roche; and Calhoun High School’s Mia Bader, Skyler Basco, Elyssa Brandl, Ashley Buenaventura, Madelyn Ferber, Mia Goldstein, Elizabeth Monastero, Mia Renna, Peter Rogers, Amy Salgado, Sharyn Schweitzer and Gary Solorzano under the supervision of teacher Nancy Scott.

“We are so proud of these young artists not only on their selection to this exhibit but also to their dedication to their craft over the years,” said Cheryl Fontana, director of the fine & performing arts. “Wellness is such a focal point of our district; encouraging students to follow and pursue their passions is certainly one key piece of it as it’s no secret what creating art can do for a person’s well-being.”  

Everyone is invited to celebrate with the students at the artist's reception and awards ceremony which will be held on Sunday, Nov. 3, from 3 to 5 p.m. 

The gallery is open Nov. 2-24, on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5 p.m. by appointment.
