High school student Isabella Avitable was recently selected for the 2021 National Art Honor Society/National Junior Art Honor Society Juried Exhibition, held annually by the National Art Education Association.

Avitable’s piece, “Lavender Hotel Room,” was one of only 93 works chosen out of 1,187 submissions. Representatives from eight member schools of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design participated as jurors for the NAHS/NJAHS . In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NAEA has transitioned to a completely virtual exhibition, which opens on Jan. 11. It can then be viewed here:

“We are so excited and proud that Isabella was accepted into the exhibition for her interior architecture design,” said teacher Heather Toomey. “She plans to pursue the arts in the future, and we are excited to see her in more art classes next year. This was a project she created in Electronic Illustration 2 class this year, and even with our current challenges, she was able to create a wonderful interior design.”

“Isabella’s interior design skills are on point and her attention to detail and lighting is beautiful,” said teacher Daniel Figliozzi.

“It’s such an honor to be chosen and represent the East Islip National Art Honor Society,” said Avitable. “I chose to create this piece because I’m into interior design and I want to pursue that for college.”
