2018 Student Exhibition
February 3, 2018 to March 4, 2018

The annual Student Exhibition, a 60-year tradition at the Parrish, features the work of more than 1,000 young artists from schools on Eastern Long Island. Working with their art teachers and through art clubs, the students demonstrate creativity, enthusiasm, and technical skill in diverse media, ranging from painting to sculpture, drawing and photography.

This years' exhibition includes work created by students in Artist-in-Residence workshops with artist Bastienne Schmidt.

In 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 works by 350 students who participated in workshops to create works inspired by Schmidt's conceptual and technical approach to art making. During the session, students explored the theme of "sense of place," and examined how they view or respond to a geographical locations based on their own personal experiences and cultural history.

The Parrish Art Museum’s educational programming is supported, in part, by Fiona and Stanley Druckenmiller, George P. Mills, Long Island Community Foundation, H. Peter Haveles Jr., May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, The John J. McDonnell and Margaret T. O’Brien Foundation, Patricia and David Rung, Town of Southampton, and The Walji Family. The Museum’s exhibitions and programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
