2020 Student Exhibition

March 7, 2020–April 19, 2020

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 exhibition will also feature collaborative student works created with artists-in-residence Irina Alimanestianu, Scott Bluedorn, and Bastienne Schmidt, who participated in Artists Choose Artists and will work with over 350 students from Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton Schools, and Tuckahoe Schools.
