Students of the East End will be revered this winter during a special exhibition where over 1,000 young artists will be highlighted. From February 9 through March 10, the Parrish Art Museum will celebrate the works of budding artists at the Water Mill-based Museum's annual Student Exhibition.

"Each year, the Student Exhibition showcases the work of our community's young artists and art educators," said Parrish Education Director Cara Conklin-Wingfield. "The visual arts are a means of personal expression and communication for all ages—we hope the exhibition inspires all our visitors to make art and helps our student artists form a lifelong appreciation for art."

The nearly 65-year tradition will launch the Parrish's Family Month, which will also include a live circus performance with the National Circus Project on Friday, February 15, a screening of 4 Little Girls: Moving Portraits of the American Civil Rights Movement, an experimental narrative film, and live performance with 36 African dancers and drummers, in collaboration with the Edge School of the Arts (ESOTA) and co-presented with the Hampton United Methodist Church on Saturday, February 23, LEGO Night workshops on Friday, March 1 and a free Community Day on Sunday, March 10.

There will also be Artist-in-Residence workshops with Shinnecock Nation member Jeremy Dennis, whose work can currently be seen in Every Picture Tells a Story. Dennis will be among attendees at the Student Exhibition opening receptions on Saturday, February 9.

"The Parrish looks forward to the enthusiasm for art making and the creativity expressed in the Student Exhibition every year," Parrish Director Terrie Sultan reflected. "That energy is amplified this year by the Museum's fifth Artist-in-Residence in the new facility, with the participation of collection artist Jeremy Dennis."

The Student Exhibition boasts both traditional and non-traditional methods of art-making, exploring a wide range of mediums such as painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and costume design. Participating schools span from Bellport to East Hampton and the North Fork.

Students in elementary and middle schools entered group projects, while high school artists had the choice of submitting an individual or collaborative projects.

Additionally, the exhibition will include group works created by over 350 students from Southampton and Hampton Bays Life Skills, and Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Hayground, Southampton, and Tuckahoe Schools that took part in the residency and used Jeremy Dennis's
conceptual and technical approach to storytelling though his photography as inspiration for their works.

"This continues to allow the Parrish to provide the inspiring opportunity for hundreds of students to work with practicing contemporary artists," Sultan said.

High Schools represented in the Student Exhibition will include Bellport, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Eastport South Manor, Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology, Greenport, Hampton Bays, Mattituck, Miller Place, Pierson, Riverhead, Ross, Southampton, Westhampton Beach, and William Floyd School District, while Elementary, Middle, and Home Schools will include Bridgehampton, Children's School, Cutchogue East Elementary, East Hampton Middle, East Quogue, Hayground, Hampton Bays Middle, On the Bay Homeschool Group, North Fork, John M. Marshall Elementary, New Suffolk Common School, Our Lady of the Hamptons, Oysterponds Elementary, Peconic Community, Raynor Country Day, Ross Lower and Upper Schools, Sag Harbor Elementary, SCNY Homeschool Group, Shelter Island Early Learning Center, Southampton Elementary, Southampton Intermediate, and Southampton Montessori.
