Two high school photography students – senior Alexa Benitez and junior Sophie Bingham – were chosen for the 20th annual Colors of Long Island student art exhibit, held at Stony Brook’s Long Island Museum.

This annual student art exhibition, sponsored by Astoria Bank, provides an opportunity for K-12 students to show their artwork in a museum setting. Both students along with parents and teachers have been invited to attend the reception on April 8.

Benitez, who was selected for Colors of Long Island for the second consecutive year, said, “It is an honor to have my work shown in the Long Island Museum."

“Having my work in a museum is great, and I am really happy that I was given this opportunity,” said Bingham.

“I am so proud of Alexa and Sophie for being recognized for their outstanding artwork,” said teacher Heather Toomey. “They are excellent students and dedicated to creating high quality work. The Long Island Museum provides such a wonderful opportunity for high school students to exhibit their work in a professional space.”
