High school photography students Naomy Mukai, Luciana Ponciolo, Kelly Waldron and Kaylee Wilko were chosen to participate in the annual High School Art Competition at Suffolk County Community College. Their work was displayed in the Sagtikos Art Gallery in the college’s Sagtikos Arts and Sciences Center, beginning with an opening reception on Dec. 9 attended by students, their family members and teachers Amarilis Singh and Heather Toomey. More than 100 students from 16 different schools submitted works for this competition.

“Being at my first showcase, seeing all the artwork and touring Suffolk’s new art center was a great overall experience for me,” Waldron said.

“I am so thankful that Suffolk gave me the opportunity to display my art for the first time,” Mukai said. “It was an honor to be chosen for this opportunity by my art teachers. Being able to see the new facilities in person, especially the darkroom with Mrs. Singh and Mrs. Toomey, was an amazing experience.”

“We are very thankful to Suffolk County Community College for offering our students the opportunity to display their talents,” Singh said. “Naomy is an incredibly talented photo student, and I am so proud of her work.”

“I am so proud of all of the students and am so excited we are finally able to celebrate and hang physical artworks in a professional gallery space,” Toomey said. “Being able to see artwork in person is an experience we have all missed.”
