Parrish Hails Young Artists

Among the 51 young artists honored for outstanding work in the Parrish Art Museum’s 2019 Student Exhibition in Water Mill were more than a dozen from high schools in Bridgehampton, Sag Harbor, and East Hampton. 

The judge selecting the winners was Neill Slaughter, a painter and retired professor of visual arts at Long Island University’s C.W. Post campus, who presented the awards with the museum’s director, Terrie Sultan, at a reception on Saturday.

The seniors recognized from East Hampton High School included Rachel Osborne (drawing/illustration), Sarah Tilstra (painting), and Jennifer Villacis Zeas (printmaking). Zane Musnicki received an honorable mention for the Art Spirit Foundation’s Pastel Award. 

Other seniors receiving awards of excellence were Will Grossman (drawing/illustration), Lucas Woelk (painting), Sophia Borzilleri (photography), and Carly Browngardt (photography) from Pierson High School, and Pierce Houghton (mixed media), Luna Wang (photography), and Jensen Rowen (printmaking) from the Ross School. 

Underclassmen named among the 11 Ones to Watch were Miles Clark, a Bridgehampton High School 10th grader, and three 11th graders from East Hampton High School, Jennifer Calle, Han Le, and Andy Ngo. 

The Student Exhibition, which closed on Sunday, included individual and collaborative works by more than 1,000 students.
