The Parrish Art Museum’s Annual Student Exhibition features works from 18 Shoreham-Wading River High School students. Under the direction of art teachers Jason Andria, Nicole Massaro and Samantha Shepard, the students demonstrated creativity, enthusiasm and technical skill in diverse media ranging from painting to sculpture, drawing and photography.
Freshmen Sydney Albert, Liam McGuire, Kaelyn Metz and Riley Metz; sophomores Gavin Meltcher, Jessica Platz and Kristen Tortora; juniors Lauren DeRosso, Rachel Scarbrough, Leah Spitaliere and Jake Whitney and seniors Jamie Johannessen, Emma Longboat, Olivia Nicoletti, Yusra Rashidzada, Brooke Roff, Julia Scheiber and Troy White are part of the more than 60-year tradition at the Water Mill museum, which showcases pieces by young artists from schools on eastern Long Island.
