2016 Student Exhibition
January 30–February 28, 2016
Each year, the Parrish Art Museum’s Student Exhibition provides an opportunity for local students to have their work on view in a professional venue. More than 1,000 young artists from private, public, parochial, and home schools participate. Participants in the Student Exhibition explore many traditional and non-traditional approaches to art-marking through their work with art teachers and art clubs in schools from Brookhaven to East Hampton and the North Fork.
The 2016 Student Exhibition also features student works made with Parrish artist-in-residence Alexis Rockman. During the fall 2015 exhibition Alexis Rockman: East End Field Drawings, the artist collaborated with over 400 students from Bridgehampton, Southampton, and Tuckahoe School Districts. Students experienced Rockman’s process, which involves extensive research and field study, and adapted this process to create their own field drawings inspired by the East End environment.
