Hamptons High School Students Invited To Participate In Congressional Art Competition

Nicole Barylski

Congressman Tim Bishop and the East End Arts Council have invited high school students throughout the 1st Congressional District to participate in the annual Congressional Art Competition. Budding artists from Southampton, East Hampton, Riverhead, Southold, Shelter Island, Brookhaven, and Smithtown can enter artwork and the winner will have their work displayed in a yearlong exhibit in the US Capitol.

"Each year I am thrilled at the response from the talented young artists who participate in the Congressional Art Competition," Bishop said. "Everyone really is a winner because this competition provides a showcase for young local artists and continues Long Island's rich artistic heritage."

The submission deadline is March 29, 2013. For more information, teachers should contact Jane Finalborgo of Congressman Bishop's Office at 631-259-8450.

The student artwork will be displayed on Friday April 5 and Saturday April 6, 2013, in an exhibit in the Lyceum Gallery in the Montaukett Learning Center at Suffolk County Community College in Riverhead. An Awards Presentation will be held on the 6th from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Gallery where Bishop will recognize each student and present him or her with a certificate before announcing the winners.
