One student takes home honorable mention and three others are featured in County-wide art competition.

GLEN COVE, NEW YORK (NOVEMBER 2022) — Four Glen Cove High School art students were featured in the 2022 Nassau County High School Student Juried Exhibit & Competition and will have their artwork on display through November 26 at The Art Guild’s gallery in Port Washington.

Phoebe Pinder took home an honorable mention for her piece Opacare, Lilia Landaverde was featured for her piece Eat Me, Natalia Monsale was featured for her piece Blossoms of Gardenia and William Santamaria was featured for his piece WSA

“We are so proud of these students, who poured their talent and dedication into such remarkable and profound artwork,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maria Rianna. “Congrats to Phoebe, Lilia, Natalia and William for earning such an esteemed honor and congrats to their teachers Leeann Palazzo and Stephen Lombardo who always encourage their creativity and enthusiasm.” 

The exhibit launched with a reception on November 6, where awards were presented to artists earning first, second and third place and two honorable mentions. Town of North Hempstead Councilwoman Mariann Dalimonte also presented winners with a certificate from the Town of North Hempstead. 

The Art Guild is a nonprofit organization that provides encouragement, education and a forum for the appreciation of the visual arts. It offers artists a space to interact and collaborate through educational opportunities, workshops, lectures, discussions and exhibits.
