Outstanding Student-Artists Featured in Virtual Exhibit

June 01, 2020

Six talented student-artists were selected as exhibiting artists in the 2020 Long Island's Best: Young Artists at The Heckscher Museum program. Senior Emily Fuchs and junior Caitlyn Bella from Division Avenue High School, juniors Nicole Amatulli and Van Hoang Le and sophomores Diane Gavrylyuk and Katelyn Smith from General Douglas MacArthur High School had their artwork featured in the virtual exhibit on the Heckscher Museum's website.

This year, 388 students from 58 Nassau and Suffolk county high schools entered their artwork into the contest. The six Levittown students were among 100 students selected for their outstanding art. Prior to submitting their pieces, students were asked to visit the museum, observe the artwork and find one to draw inspiration from. They each wrote an artist statement to accompany their piece which was equally as important as the artwork itself in determining whether or not they earned a spot in the exhibit.

With the guidance of their art teacher Tim Ryan, both Division Avenue students submitted their pieces made out of gouache on paper. Emily's artwork was entitled "Fulfilling my Commitments," while Caitlyn's was called "Casey's Return." Nicole, a student in Rebecca Muir's class, submitted a digital photograph entitled "Reflecting." Van and Diane, students in Tom Bobal's class, submitted a folded paper collage called "A Journey's Ending" and a colored pencil, nupastel and acrylic piece called "Identity in Red," respectively. With the guidance of her teacher Lynn Spinnato, Katelyn submitted a ceramic piece she titled "Bittersweet."

The students were honored at the museum's virtual opening reception and awards ceremony on Instagram Live. Online viewers were also able to cast their votes on their favorite artwork from the exhibit.

Congratulations to all six students!
