High school student-artists Lauren Jackson, Rebecca Schreiner and Crystal Vessalico were showcased in the Art League of Long Island’s recent “Go APE Advanced Placement Student Exhibition.” Now in its ninth year, the “Go Ape” exhibit celebrates the exceptional talents of Long Island’s young AP art students, as selected by their teachers.

The show ran from Feb. 27 through March 13, displayed at the Art League’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery in Dix Hills, culminating in an artists’ reception and awards presentation.

Schreiner, a junior in Daniel Figliozzi’s AP drawing class, said, “It was interesting to see other talented high school artists’ works at the exhibition.”

“I was happy to put Rebecca’s work in the ‘Go Ape’ show, as she is building a beautiful body of nearly photorealistic drawings,” said Figliozzi. “She has been working really hard this year and am very proud of her.”

Senior Crystal Vessalico, a senior enrolled in Heather Toomey's AP 2D design course, said, “I am so honored that my artwork was selected to be showcased.”

“I am so proud of Crystal and Lauren, who are extremely talented artists,” said Toomey. “It is an honor to have their work hung in a professional gallery and I am glad the Art League provides that opportunity to emerging high school artists.”
