The Parrish Art Museum Honors 89 Young Artists For Their Work In Student Exhibition

The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill is honoring 89 young artists for their outstanding work in the 2022 Student Exhibition. The award winners were selected from more than 300 high school student participants by Neill Slaughter, painter and retired professor of Visual Art at Long Island University, C.W. Post campus.

On Saturday, April 9, from 3 to 4 PM, Parrish Deputy Director Melanie Crader and Slaughter will honor the students at the Museum with Awards of Excellence to 72 Seniors, and “Ones to Watch” awards to 17 underclassmen. The event is open to the public.

“Having spent a considerable time reviewing all the artwork, I am certainly cognizant of what is entailed in the creative endeavors I witnessed in this year’s exhibition and want to compliment everyone’s efforts — from the artists to the teachers — who continually motivate these young artists to rise admirably to the challenge of creating such a wide range of art in a multitude of media,” said Slaughter.

“The Parrish’s annual exhibition of student art serves to affirm the importance of art education this and every year,” said Education Director Cara Conklin-Wingfield. “The work of participating teachers demonstrates their deep commitment to art education, their students, and the community. We cannot thank them, and Neill, enough.”

Since 1956, the Parrish Art Museum has been showing the work of young artists from Eastern Long Island schools at the annual Student Exhibition, which provides an overview of the high level of creativity and accomplishment achieved in regional schools for generations. Students demonstrate imagination, enthusiasm, and technical skill in diverse media such as painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, collage, and textiles.

The exhibition opened to the public on March 13, and closes on Sunday, April 24.
