East Hampton - Guild Hall opened its doors Saturday to the 17th Annual Student Art Festival, welcoming friends and family to come and see the work of over 2,500 area students from nine schools in grades Kindergarten through eighth. "We're just so happy to be able to hold the Student Art Festival this year," said Barbara Jo Howard, Director of Marketing and Communications at Guild Hall. "This year we have more students than ever from all over the East End and we're really thankful to the people who made this event possible."

Nancy Brunn, School Programs Coordinator at Guild Hall, said that the great thing about the Student Art Festival is that it "helps nurture and encourage young talent. This exhibition celebrates the efforts and artistic interests of young people throughout the East End by inviting them to submit their work and experience an intimate and accessible museum environment."

The show, which will be on display through March 1 is the first of two such exhibits and precedes the High School Student Art Festival and the Student Film Project on March 14. The current exhibit is open to the public free of charge Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 noon until 5 p.m.
