Three talented Huntington High School artists have been tapped to display their work at this year’s Suffolk County Art Leaders Association All County & Scholarship Show at Old Babylon Town Hall on West Main Street.
Spectacular artwork created by seniors Tyler Basil, Lauren Landolfi and Sebastian Ramirez has been chosen for the exhibit, which is one of the highlights of the year for Long Island students.
The trio of Huntington teenagers have captured the respect of a panel of seasoned and discerning judges. The exhibition and competition is an annual event held in partnership with the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts.
Top student-artists from across the county were invited to submit artwork in categories ranging from drawing, painting, 3D and photography to mixed media, digital media and scholarship divisions.
The three Huntington artists are studying with veteran teacher Kasmira Mohanty, herself an award winning and well-known artist.
An opening reception will be held tomorrow (Saturday, February 12) at Babylon’s Old Town Hall from 12-2 p.m. An awards ceremony is set for 1 p.m. The exhibition is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Ms. Mohanty has been with the district since 2001 and in that time she has developed a program that regularly produces students who are capable of creating award winning artwork. Several of her students have gone on to full time careers using their digital art talents. She holds degrees in photography, fine arts and education from Fashion Institute of Technology, SUNY Purchase College and Dowling College.
