Senior David Schwimmer received an Award of Excellence for his painting entitled Just Another Day and Senior Veronica Zawojek received an Award of Excellence for her work entitled Exoskeleton Wings.
Senior A.J. Plousadis had his work entitled Another Day at the Office on display at the gallery and was one of three students chosen by Byram Hills art teachers to represent the best of the school. Byram Hills was the only school to have more than one winner.
Student artwork was juried by a panel of art professionals who selected seven students to receive an Award of Excellence. On display were art pieces from 90 talented artists representing 31 high schools from the Hudson Valley, the Bronx, and Southern Connecticut.
For the past 14 years, OSilas Gallery has organized its annual StART exhibition to encourage and support high school artists by giving them the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional gallery and build their credentials and portfolios for college.
