The 22nd Annual Student Art Festival, Part I For Grades K-8 will be on view through Sunday, February 23, at Guild Hall in East Hampton.
The kindergarten through eighth grade exhibition opened on Saturday from 2 to 4p.m. in the lobby and a live show on stage in the John Drew Theater featuring musical groups from the local elementary and middle schools.
For 20 years, The Student Art Festival has helped nurture and encourage young talent on the East End. More than 5,000 students from kindergarten through high school from 11 participating public and private and home schools in the Amagansett, East Hampton, Montauk, Wainscott, Southampton, Bridgehampton, Shelter Island, and Sagaponack districts are invited to participate. The exhibition celebrates the artistic pursuits of our young people by exhibiting their work in a museum environment and salutes their teachers who cultivate and inspire the creative process.
Admission is free.
