Excellent EI Students Selected for 12x12 Art Exhibition

A group of talented high school student-artists were chosen for display in the 15th annual 12x12 High School Art Exhibition, held from May 7-16. Sponsored by LIU Post, the competition asks students to create works of art that are 12 inches wide by 12 inches high.

Chosen students included Caitlin Breitenbecker, Kaylin Cuba, Julia Lambert, Christopher Palmer, Gia Piazza and Alicia Rodriguez for photography; and Eliza Channing, Hailee Cornell, Sabine Gebhard and Kevin Mesa for electronic illustration.

“I’ve never had my artwork shown in a college exhibit, and it’s an honor,” said Mesa.

“The students selected for this exhibit have such excellent pieces, and I am so proud of their artwork,” said teacher Heather Toomey. “It is such a wonderful opportunity that LIU Post provides, exhibiting high school students in their gallery space.”
