Ten Terrific Student-Artists Displayed at Suffolk Competition

High school students Niamh Amitrano, Sophie Bingham, Alli Bunde, Hailey Cooke, Julia Desiderio, Cassandra Fernandez, Gia Piazza, Jordan Rant, Paige Roses and Zoe Stengel participated in Suffolk County Community College’s 10th annual High School Art Competition. The students are currently enrolled in Joy Taylor’s photography class and Heather Toomey’s electronic illustration class.

Work by the 10 terrific student-artists was on display as they attended a reception in the Captree Commons Building at the college’s Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood on Dec. 14, with friends, family and teachers in attendance.

“These students are some of the most dedicated in my class, and I'm so happy they showcased their outstanding photographs in this show,” said Taylor. “I'm fortunate to work with such great kids.”

Sophie Bingham, who had pieces chosen for display in both photography and electronic illustration, said, “I’m honored to have both my skillsets represented.”

“This was a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase their creative talents,” said Toomey. “I am so proud of these young artists and look forward to seeing how they continue to grow and develop their artistic skills.”
